During the 3rd Reich the Edelweisspirates gathered thousands of young people living in the ruins of Cologne and other cities which later transformed into a resistance movement.
Many of them had to go underground, hiding jews, people forced into manual labor who were on the run and of course, deserters.
The Gestapo pursues and finds the youths, tortures them, and eventually executes them in public. Eight of them between the ages of 15 and 20 and five adults were hanged without a guilty verdict ever being reached, on the 10 of november 1944.
