November 9th, 1923

Today is the anniversary of the beginning of the National Socialist Revolution in Germany, and of the deaths of sixteen heroes who with the F├╝hrer 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:

Felix Alfarth
Andreas Bauriedl
Theodor Casella
Wilhelm Ehrlich
Martin Faust
Anton Hechenberger
Oskar Koerner
Karl Kuhn
Karl Laforce
Kurt Neubauer
Claus von Pape
Theodor Pfordten
Johann Rickmers
Max Erwin von Scheubner-Richter
Lorenz Ritter von Stransky
Wilhelm Wolf



"Und Ihr habt doch gesiegt, Kameraden."
