80 years ago today - May 28, 1942

In Germany seventeen-year-old Helmuth Huebener is charged with conspiracy to commit high treason and is sentenced to death. His crime consisted of printing anti-Nazi pamphlets. Since he printed many of them on the local branch mimeograph machine he was also excommunicated by his branch president. He was beheaded on Oct 27. The First Presidency later overturned the excommunication.
