The last #freespeech before the seizure of power by the #Nazis at the Reichstag meeting on 23 March 1933 in the #Berlin Krolloper of the SPD member Otto Wels (@spdbt):
"We are defenseless, but defenseless is not dishonorable. Of course, the opponents want us to honor, there is no doubt about that. But that this attempt at divorce will fall back on the authors themselves, because it is not our honor that is destroyed in this world tragedy,
that is our faith to the last breath. Freedom and life can be taken from us - not the honor!"
in German:

"Wir sind wehrlos, wehrlos ist aber nicht ehrlos. Gewiss, die Gegner wollen uns an die Ehre, daran ist kein Zweifel. Aber dass dieser Versuch der Ehrabschneidung einmal auf die Urheber selbst zurückfallen wird,
weil es nicht unsere Ehre ist, die bei dieser Welttragödie zu Grunde geht, das ist unser Glaube bis zum letzten Atemzug. Freiheit und Leben kann man uns nehmen - die Ehre nicht!"
