German playwright Ernst Toller was sentenced to prison for high treason in 1919.
Friends defended him saying he was a good man.
A satirical cartoon in the paper wrote:
- Have you heard the latest news, Schorche, Toller only has to serve 5 years because he had an ethos.
- An ethos? I want one of those too! How do you get it?
- You imbecile. You can just buy one. It's the same as an alibi.
