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.
