Happy Birthday Kurt Tucholsky

125 years ago today, German journalist, writer and satirist Kurt Tucholsky was born.

TucholskyParis1928

You can read about him here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_Tucholsky,

and you can read his article: What may satire do? in an English translation.

Originally I wanted to elaborate on the changes of my blog, but in the light of current events, I found it more important to remember Kurt Tucholsky’s birthday and to point to his work. Fascists and totalitarian regimes, beliefs, and philosophies have forever tried to silence critics. It is a sign of their weakness that they need cowardly murder to do this.
