The prisoner defiantly stares down Heinrich Himmler, Hitler’s right-hand-man, who was responsible for the Holocaust. Greasley’s confrontation with Himmler took place during an inspection of the camp he was confined to. The inmates were ordered to remain seated, but Greasley refused. Horace Greasley also escaped the death camp, but sneaked back in to rescue a German woman whom he had fallen in love with.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Remember that this man wasn’t a teddy bear that said “I have a dream” over and over again when you pulled the string. He did not ask nicely for equal rights. And he was killed for standing up for what he knew was the truth. RIP one of the greatest leaders of the world.
