2.  Lone Man Refusing To Do Nazi Salute

When you’re in the middle of a crowd, blending in can be the safest way to anonymity. But this man who refused to respect Herr Wolf in a Nazi salute definitely didn’t want anonymity, at least for posterity. His crossed arms were even more revealing of his not-so-positive thoughts about Hitler or the Nazi regime. Could it be that he was planning to escape Germany that day and that a tiny act of rebellion was just what he needed to boost his courage. I guess we’ll never know.
