German troops march through occupied Paris

Nazi Army occuping France where Bauman deserted

A few deserted Hitler as a matter of conscience and were convicted of treason.  Now 60 years later these “traitors” are being vindicated.  This BBC article gives the details with some pics and audio.


an excerpt:

Mr Baumann says the men who were described as “wartime traitors” were not traitors at all.

“They behaved humanely. Some hid Jews, others helped prisoners – they followed their moral conscience,” he said.

It is a view backed by experts. “These men were not traitors, they were part of the German resistance movement against Hitler,” said Johannes Tuchel, the Director of the German Resistance Memorial Centre in Berlin.

“This is a great day for Germany – finally the last sentences handed down by Nazi courts will be lifted,” he said.
