In 1940, Václav "Robert" Bozděch, a Czech air gunner serving with the French Air Force, was flying over northern France when his aircraft was shot down by the enemy fire. Robert survived the crash and went to an abandoned farmhouse. As he entered the kitchen, he discovered a starving German shepherd puppy. He knew the puppy wouldn't survive alone, so he unzipped his leather flying jacket, slipped the puppy inside, and returned to his airbase. Robert named his new friend "Antis", and the dog became the Squadron's mascot. The airmen quickly noticed Antis' ability to hear enemy warplanes long before humans did.
On many occasions, he barked and alerted the airbase of an imminent attack, and on one occasion, he ignored his own injuries in order to rescue his human friends. Shortly after Germany invaded France, Robert and Antis went to England to carry on fighting against the Nazis. Robert served with the Royal Air Force, and Antis followed him everywhere. The German shepherd even flew with Robert on 30 missions over enemy territory. One day, the Wing Commander discovered that Antis flew on missions (which was strictly forbidden), so Robert began saying: "Sir, please let me explain....".
His superior interrupted him and said: "There's a very good English expression that says: what the eye doesn't see, the heart doesn't grieve after". Robert and Antis both survived the war and remained best friends until Antis died in 1953. His gravestone says in Czech: "Loyal unto death".
At 20 years old, Sergeant Leon Bass was among the first US soldiers to witness and liberate the Buchenwald Concentration Camp in Germany. In Yad Vashem’s short film, “Liberators and Survivors: The First Moments,” Bass recalled: “I can never forget that day, because when I walked through the gate I saw… human beings that had been beaten, they’d been starved, they’d been tortured. They had been denied everything.”
As a black man, Leon faced racism throughout his life. The impact of what he saw at Buchenwald was so profound that he went on to become a teacher and speaker on racism and the Holocaust, sharing his unique perspective as a witness to various forms of oppression. In 1996, he was awarded the Pearlman Award for Humanitarian Advancement from Jewish Women International.
Leon passed away in 2015 at the age of 90. @yadvashemusa honors his memory and legacy as a hero and activist for the Jewish people and civil rights for all peoples.
Anyone not upset by this should be
I think of the men and women who died for our flag and are still dying for our freedom and these snakes are living high on the hog ---- a life we would love to have for ourselves and our children and they are so dishonorable as to sit on their fat asses. Makes my blood boil, as it should yours.
Members of Congress not standing for the Pledge of Allegiance to the USA. And to think these people (Democrats) not standing are making laws for the rest of the country. This is a sad state of affairs.
This is sad, sad, sad. It's bad enough to see it with sports, but now it is in our schools and even our U.S. Congress ...If they won't stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance, they have no place in our Congress.
