This photograph of a girl scout named Lucie face-to-face with a neo-Nazi member in Brno, Czech Republic, is so iconic that it already got 61,000 points on Reddit.


The girl, from the Czech Junák – český skaut (Scouts and Guides of the Czech Republic) is holding a sign which reportedly says “We will raise your children”— a Scout motto — and is protesting against an extreme right rally held in the Czech city on 1 May.

In a Facebook post, the group said: “People from all walks of life, and #Scouts among them, came to the streets during an extreme right march yesterday, to express their support for values of diversity, peace, and understanding. Creating a better world!”

The march is understood to have been organized by the DSSS Workers’ Party – a far-right party in the Czech Republic.

Photographer Vladimír Čičmanec, who captured the image during Monday’s protests, said the “neo-Nazi was clearly angry with her, but she stood her ground”.

Tatjana left her Czech Republic homeland for America. Now she waxes nostalgic (and humorous -- kind of) for the life she left behind.
