Resistance to Resistance: Historical Note
A lot of cooperation went into November's writing project. Even though our writers were researching different places and times in history, they took an interest in each other's efforts. FWR read Minorvogonpoet's 'A Place to Call Home', and it stirred a memory. He found this photo in his collection. It came from the D-Day museum in Normandy. We thought we'd share.
Translation (from the German side):
Every Frenchman who takes up arms against the German occupation forces or supports measures that weaken German defence places himself outside human rights law and will be treated without mercy as a partisan. The inhabitants of the country should understand clearly that terrorist groups of bandits turn any community that offers them lodging, food or intelligence into a battlefield and that they will suffer the consequences of civil war.
Every locality in which attacks on Germans occur, or in the vicinity of such attacks, must reckon with total destruction in the struggle.
