Against Normalization: The Lesson of the “Munich Post”

One major paper, one group of journalists, stood up to Hitler and the Nazis, refusing to normalize them, a crucial lesson for our times.

At least some of them disappeared or ended up in Dachau, paying the ultimate price for their devotion to journalism.
