I laugh at their attempt to grab whatever it is that’s in the cup.
The immediate reaction of German POWs upon being forced by the US Army to watch to the uncensored footage of the concentration camps shot by the US Signal Corps.
People often forget that most of the German troops had no idea about what was going on, they weren’t all fanatic Nazis bent on genocide, they were just regular soldiers who answered the call when their country went to war.
Not all enemies are as ugly as the crimes they commit.
I was unaware of this. Damn.
My Opa was one of these men. He was only seventeen when he was drafted into the war, and he walked from France back to his home because he didn’t want to fight. He got shot in the leg by American soldiers, yet still gave my American GI father his blessing to marry my mother decades later. And most of all, he despised Hitler.
A lot of people assume that “German soldier” during WWII meant that you were a fanatical Nazi, and that’s just not the case at all.
Reblogging because wow this story is amazing and needs to be seen by more people.
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

This is what I’ve been trying to tell people, but no one gets it. People are too fucking pussy to stand up. Stop being afraid. Us Americans weren’t afraid of the British in the Revolutionary War, were we?!“It is curious that physical courage be so common in the world and moral courage so rare” -Mark Twain“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.” -Ambrose Redmoon
