Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A unique study of the WW2 culture of Germany.

Synopsis:

In February 1943, three students from the White Rose, an anti-Nazi resistance group in Munich, were beheaded by order of the People's Court of the Third Reich.

The White Rose is largely forgotten today. After all, the group was tiny, and it grew only a short while before being brutally extinguished. Yet obscure as it was, the White Rose continues to intrigue and inspire.

As the story of a group of young people who courageously refused to swim with the stream, it gains a relevance that is of utmost significance for our time.

Synopsis:

Depicts the activities and dedication of the young Munich University students who were executed for printing pamphlets attacking Nazi rule.

Synopsis:

The White Rose tells the story of Hans Scholl and Sophie Scholl, who in 1942 led a small underground organization of German students and professors to oppose the atrocities committed by Hitler and the Nazi Party. They named their group the White Rose, and they distributed leaflets denouncing the Nazi regime. Sophie, Hans, and a third student were caught and executed.

Written by Inge Scholl (Han's and Sophie's sister), The White Rose features letters, diary excerpts, photographs of Hans and Sophie, transcriptions of the leaflets, and accounts of the trial and execution. This is a gripping account of courage and morality.
