One Final Bonus – Richard Wake Quote 

“Then why are you doing this, running these risks?” “This might sound corny, but it’s because I am a proud Swiss,” he said. “My country is so worried about not offending anyone and staying neutral. All we seem to care about is doing what’s best for business. We do that, and we convince ourselves that we’re just doing it to protect our people, as a manner of self-preservation. But in doing it, in protecting ourselves, we ignore the assault on decency, and all that is evil that the Nazis represent. I just can’t accept that trade-off. So this is what I can do.”― Richard Wake, The Spies of Zurich
