Harro and Libertas Schulze-Boysen.
Journalist Harro Schulze-Boysen is known even before 1933 as a resolute opponent of the National Socialists and sympathizes with the national revolutionaries. In the mid-1930s, a circle of friends and opponents of the regime forms around him. Harro Schulze-Boysen is an air force officer assigned to the Reich Aviation Ministry, a position that gives him access to a lot of information about the true nature of the National Socialist regime. His wife Libertas collects reports of National Socialist crimes of violence. Both are sentenced to death by the Reich Military Court on December 19, 1942, and are murdered in Plötzensee on December 22, 1942.
