Nazi resistance fighter and Catholic trade union activist Nikolaus Gross is hanged at Plotzensee Prison in Berlin, Germany, after having been arrested in connection with the failed plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler in 1944. “If we do not risk our life today, how do we then want one day to justify ourselves before God and our people?” Gross was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2001.
