To the memory of Adam von Trott zu Solz, a courageous German resistance fighter.
Dr Adam von Trott zu Solz (1909-1944) was a lawyer and diplomat during the dreadful time of the Third Reich. An Anglophile and a direct descendant to John Jay, a founding father of the United States of America, he desperately tried to use his prominent position as a diplomat for the German Reich to win British and US support for the German resistance movement opposing Hitler and his henchmen.
Adam travelled tirelessly across the globe to win support, yet unfortunately did not succeed. The Nazi “People’s Court” in Berlin sentenced him to death by hanging (26 August 1944) alongside other courageous German reistance fighters.
Adam von Trott zu Solz was an outstanding man, all Germans can be proud of!
