Stop Women of Aviation Worldwide From Honouring Nazi Pilot

This petition had 35 supporters

This week, the Women of Aviation Worldwide (WOAW) will be honouring Hanna Reitsche for being the first woman helicopter pilot. They have chosen to ignore the fact that Hanna Reitsche was a Nazi, who enjoyed a close relationship with Adolf Hitler, who awarded her the Iron Cross, first class.

Being a feminist means equality for all women. Equality means that we should all be treated with the same amount accountability. Demand that WOAW remove this woman's tribute from their website and events. She should be held accountable for her unapologetic place in the Nazi party.

WOAW claims they are "not into making a political statement" but they are doing just that by turning a blind eye to the political affiliations of Hanna Reitsche.

This denial Nazism re-victimizes all people who are survivors of the Holocaust. This is unacceptable! Please sign this petition to show the Women of Aviation Worldwide that we will not stand silently and allow this kind of complacency. Lest we forget!
