  •  My grandparent hid an Austrian soldier (9+ / 0-)

    for several years during the war - he was conscripted into the German army - was awol and my grandmother found him in the garden-house eating her vegetables

    So even thought they knew what would happen to them if he was found in their house -- they hid him until the end of the war

    and he went home to Austria - and soon after got married there with my grandparents attending the wedding

    Courage matters.....
