YOU’RE THE NEW REVOLUTION, THE ANGST FILLED ADOLESCENT YOU FIT THE STEREOTYPE WELL.
Today in history: May 22, 1942 - Stjepan Filipović, a Croatian Partisan during World War II, was hanged by the fascists. As the rope was put around his neck, Filipović defiantly thrust his hands out and denounced the Germans and their Axis allies as murderers, shouting “Death to fascism, freedom to the people!” He urged the Yugoslav people to resist and implored them to never cease resisting. Filipović joined the workers’ movement in 1937, was arrested in 1939 and was sentenced to a year in prison. He joined the Communist Party of Yugoslavia in 1940 and was commander of a Partisans’ unit by 1941. He was captured on February 24, 1942 by Axis forces and hanged on May, 22, 1942.
