A little-known fact we dug up about the Freemasons is that they were persecuted in Germany during World War II. No one can be certain of the exact numbers, but it is estimated that between 80,000 and 200,000 Freemasons were killed under the Nazi regime.
In fact, Masons who were detained in concentration camps were considered political prisoners and as such, were required to wear an inverted red triangle patch as identification. (The Nazis used color-coded triangles to mark other types of inmates, as well, including pink triangles for gay men and black triangles for lesbians and other "common criminals.")
It's not that we want to bring you down... we mention it to demonstrate that the Masons' long history hasn't been a cakewalk!
And while we suppose you could reclaim the red triangle as a symbol of your Masonic pride, it's much easier to buy these cool Freemason Address Labels from CheckAdvantage! Personalize yours today!
