Thank you for sharing this. I think that sometimes we forget
that the moral decisions of youths can result in dire consequences.
To the extent that these boys were "True Scouts", I think that we
all should have a moment of silence to reflect upon the decisions
that Scouts have to make.
In this way, maybe the Edelweisspiraten live on, in each of us,
in every Scout.
