Harro Schulze-Boysen

Harro Schulze-Boysen[a] was a German officer and a resistance fighter against Adolph Hitler. His exchanges with the Red Army over radio were decrypted by the German Army High Command and he was arrested and executed shortly thereafter.

Wenn wir auch sterben sollen, So wissen wir: Die Saat Geht auf. Wenn Köpfe rollen, dann Zwingt doch der Geist den Staat.

Glaubt mit mir an die gerechte Zeit, die alles reifen lässt!

— Harro Schulze-Boysen, 2.9.1909 - 22.12.1942

In English:

If we, too, shall die, we know this: The seed grows. If heads roll, the spirit nevertheless coerces the state.

Believe with me in the just time that lets everything ripen!

— Harro Schulze-Boysen, September 2, 1909 - December 22, 1942
