This is the the site of, arguably, the greatest act of non-violent resistance of the 20th Century.
During June/July 1942 and early 1943 students and a Professor at the Ludwig-Maximilians Universität in Munich appealed, through a series of pamphlets, for resistance to Nazi dictatorship. They called for the immediate end to the war and an end to the despotism of the Nazi regime. The pamphlets were distributed in and around the university and through a series of brave couriers throughout Germany.
On the 18th February 1943 Hans and Sophie Scholl were arrested after being caught distributing pamphlets in the main atrium of the University. As a result the White Rose resistance group was broken up and 7 people including Hans and Sophie Scholl were executed.
In July 1943 the Royal Air Force dropped a total of over 5 million leaflets over German cities including Cologne, Frankfurt, Hamburg and the cities of the Ruhr region. These bore the title: ‘A German Leaflet: The Manifesto of the Students of Munich’. The historical significance of the White Rose’s resistance to the Nazi regime is undisputed today. They displayed courage when most other Germans had none, and spoke out about issues on which the majority of the population remained silent or cowed by years of relentless propaganda. #wanderinghistory#history#historyfacts#travelphotography#travel#historian#munich#scholl#sophiescholl#munichhistory#germany#whiterose#bombercommand#raf#ww2#ww2history
A Boeing Fortress Mark II, FK190 'J', of No. 206 Squadron RAF, prepares to take off on patrol from Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides. Note the aerials and 'stickleback' array of the ASV Mark I anti-submarine radar on the top of the rear fuselage.
No. 206 Squadron was formed on 31 December 1916 as No. 6 Squadron, Royal Naval Air Service, a fighter unit operating Nieuport 17s and later Sopwith Camels over the Western Front before disbanding on 27 August 1917.
The squadron was reformed on 1 January 1918 as a bomber and reconnaissance unit, operating Airco DH9s. With the establishment of the RAF in 1918 the squadron was renumbered No. 206 Squadron, RAF.
On the outbreak of the Second World War, the Squadron entered into a routine of patrols from Bircham Newton with detachments at other bases around the United Kingdom, including RAF Carew Cheriton in South Wales and RAF Hooton Park on the Mersey.
An airfield has existed on Benbecula in Scotland's rugged Outer Hebrides since 1936, when Scottish Airways began operating to what was known as Balivanich Airfield, located on the north west corner of the island.
Between 1941 and 1942, the airfield became RAF Benbecula, when it came under the control of the Royal Air Force's Coastal Command. During this period it was home to aircraft carrying out patrols in the Atlantic, protecting shipping convoys from German U-Boats.
During this period, No. 206 Squadron moved north to Scotland, where it operated out of Benbecula. In July 1942, the squadron converted to the Boeing Fortress Mk.II - as depicted here - allowing long range patrols over the Atlantic, moving to the Azores during October 1943, before returning to the United Kingdom for re-equipping with the Consolidated Liberator Mk.VI, later augmented by the Liberators Mk.VIII.
In the foreground is my dearest pulling the world's sexiest face and in the background is a Victor bomber and a Hawker Hunter. Both aircraft left an indelible mark on history. #incredible#aircraft#history#machines#raf
