Last photo of Lenin, in 1923. Persistent stories mark syphilis as the cause of Lenin's death. The mental strains of leading a revolution, governing, and fighting a civil war aggravated the physical debilitation consequent to the wounds from the attempted assassinations; Lenin retained a bullet in his neck, until a German surgeon removed it on 24 April 1922. Among his comrades, Lenin was notable for working almost ceaselessly, 14-16hrs daily.
Hans Scholl (22 September 1918 – 22 February 1943) was a founding member of the Weisse Rose resistance movement in Nazi Germany. He was convicted of high treason after having been found distributing anti-war leaflets at the University of Munich with his sister Sophie. As a result, they were both executed by guillotine.
