His name was August Landmesser. He was a Nazi Party member until he married a Jewish woman and they had two children; he was expelled and eventually imprisoned for "race defilement". He was eventually drafted, sent into combat in Yugoslavia, and presumably died in October 1944. His wife was killed at a camp. Their two daughters survived.
In 1936, in Hamburg, the Nazis threw a rally to celebrating the launching of a new warship. Landmesser, having just been expelled from the party, decided not to go along with the gag.
THIS is the very definition of the Tattered Remnant.
Be This Guy.
