soldiers

RIP to all the young black and brown kids, who were specifically targeted by recruiters because they knew there weren’t many other options. RIP to all the poor high schoolers who joined for a regular paycheck and a supposedly “honorable” job. RIP to all the brown folks who found themselves in another country killing people who looked just like them. RIP to all the black and brown kids who joined for a chance to further their education, who never saw their dreams realized. #Hate it!

As Polish paratroopers landed on their drop zone south-west of Arnhem, Netherlands on 21 September 1944, soldiers from the 10. SS Panzer Division Frundsberg were waiting and made sure they did not receive a warm welcome. The Polish paratroopers were shot out of the sky like birds suffering heavy casualties.
