This shows the humanity of a number of Germans in contrast to how the nation had been swayed to follow Hitler blindly. Its a brilliant fact and I'm glad you shared it.

The US national anthem's melody is based on an English song, BTW. (Another fun fact: the melody of "My Country Tis of Thee" is the same as "God Save the Queen" which is taken from a Prussian song, "Heil dir im Siegerkranz", 'coincidentally' the British monarchy is an extension of various German monarchies. So WWI was nothing more than a family feud, using millions of people as pawns.)
