Failed post open thread

Sometimes, even I don't feel like posting anything.

Maybe because I spent time earlier today on a post that went nowhere. I thought that this was really interesting (click to enlarge):
The thought that there was a building full of yeshiva bochurim fighting Nazis in 1939 was intriguing, but it seems that Nazi newspapers are not very truthful. What a shock.

The Nazis did burn the entire contents of the bais medrash, but there did not seem to be a battle over Yeshiva Chachmei Lublin. More details about what did happen in Lublin here and here.
