Birth of Carl von Ossietzky (1889-1938), radical German pacifist. He was convicted of high treason and espionage in 1931 after publishing details of Germany’s re-arming in violation of the Treaty of Versailles. He was imprisoned by the Nazis, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize while in prison, and died in 1938 of tuberculosis and from the after-effects of the abuse he suffered in the concentration camps.
