Facing Down The Enemy

Written by: George Chittenden : 15 Sep 2019

In this incredible photo you can see French resistance fighter, Georges Blind, smiling at a firing squad! The photo was taken in Oct 1944. It was actually a mock execution in an attempt to make him talk.

Georges, as you can imagine by the fearless expression on his face, didn’t talk. Eventually he was sent to a concentration camp, where he was selected for execution on arrival. He died in late November 1944.

We would like to invite you to claim a place on 'The History Projects' hall of recognition. You might have noticed the Hexagons on the sides of the screen, this is our recognition wall. You can have a picture of your choice on our recognition wall, whether it be you, your dog or even a family member for just £5 a month. This money helps us keep the webpage and our social media content alive and also pays for the other great work we do such as; making documentaries, visiting schools and delivering other great community projects.

Of course, you do not have to give £5 a month. If you would like to donate less or more then of course that is fine, £5 is just how much it costs to get a hexagon. You could sponsor 3 hexagons if you choose or just donate £1 a month or any amount of your choice.

Every contribution we receive from readers such as yourself helps us, help others, and allows us to make sure that the lessons history has taught us will never be lost.
