by Andreatta Geerdes
WASHINGTON, DC, January 23, 2013 – Dorothy Thompson knew how to oppose tyranny.
As a correspondent in Europe in the 1920s and 1930s, Thompson had witnessed Adolph Hitler’s rise to power, his dismantling of civil liberties, and his transformation of Germany into a dictatorship. In 1934, Thompson was the first correspondent expelled from Nazi Germany for her writing.
