The Martyrs of November 9th
Today is the anniversary of the beginning of the National Socialist Revolution in Germany, and of the deaths of sixteen heroes who with the Fuhrer marched that day from the Burgerbraukeller to the Feldherrenhalle in Munich.
They came from all walks of life but had in common a burning desire to restore the honor of the Fatherland, the spark of conscience and historical responsibility, and the knowledge that no matter how distant or unattainable the goal seems, the evil men do can also be undone by men.
Their names will never be forgotten:

Max Erwin von Scheubner-Richter
