Czech Girl Scout Who Stood Up to Neo-Nazi Is Internet Hero

What will be the most remembered/shared photo of 2017?

Last year that photo was possibly the image of a bloody, dusty Syrian boy awaiting medical help in Aleppo following a chemical attack.

This shot, captured at an extreme right rally held on Monday, May 1, in Brno, could possibly be in the running for the year’s most iconic image.

Taken by Vladimír Čičmanec, it was posted yesterday by the World Organization of Scout Movements on their Facebook page and has quickly gone viral.

The photo shows Lucie, a Brno Junák český skaut (Scouts and Guides of the Czech Republic) holding a sign which says “We will raise your children,” the Scout motto.

Other local photographers posted additional pictures of the powerful exchange between the teen and grown man on their social media.
