The White Rose was a very small group of German university students in Munich in He and the other Nazi leaders were aware that their chief danger was not outside enemies, but people like college students, storekeepers, etc, who were inside the gates, and could throw them open if they united against the Nazis and all they stood for. They were obviously sustained by their religion, and their protest seemed to be founded on humanity rather than political ends of any particular kind.

Sep 30, Sandra Rahimi rated it it was amazing. But, on the whole, there are only a few other cases of vocal protest comparable to the White Rose, usually crushed just as quickly and ruthlessly. The first part is a story of their childhoods and their lives told from the perspective of their surviving sister Inge.

Inge and other Scholl family members were arrested and interrogated, but later released. How could they encourage others to? Inge does write a conclusion where she tries to assess the impact her siblings had and make sense of the desire for current society to claim them as their heroes, to see themselves reflect in their actions.

Sophie ige Hans Scholl grew up in Hitler’s youth groups. Plus it contains the leaflets produced and other supporting documentation. Sadly, I think it possible that by their deaths, the National Socialist state made further resistance less likely.

Inge Scholl

An excellent account of the idealistic student movement that attempted to end the atrocities of Nazi Germany. There was no violence in their opposition, they didn’t hurt anyone, for for their willingness to state that Hitler and Weissf was evil and wrong three of the leaders were executed by beheading.

This was forty years before Orwell predicted it. The educators hoped that the bravery displayed in it, the choice to put others’ lives over country, even when that meant possibly losing your own, might help students do the same. The story of the White Rose Movement has been made into film three times.

I’ve read quite about about The White Rose and the role of Hans and Sophie Scholl in the group’s activities, so I thought I’d read what is probably the first account written about this resistance group.

Interesting read, Hel, thanks. Very relevant to modern America. I have read now books which explain diee things I have wondered about.


They denounced the regime for its cruelty and appealed to German citizens’ humanity. Others were caught and executed later in spite of this.

These can make an excellent adjunct to a history course on the period, and will probably speak to young people taking those courses, because the White Rose members are so much like students in any time and place. Even those meetings might be enough for imprisonment or death, but the group decided it wasn’t enough. Have you 10th grader ask for help reviewing for his chemistry exam, 30 years since you studied photons oh, wait; that’s from Star Trek.

Ultimately, they paid for their resistance with their lives and the lives of 3 other young friends and one of their professors. Whether you know about the war, German Knowing nothing of The White Weusse and its members, I read this book after my wife brought it home college research for the win!

Die Weisse Rose

They named their weisde the White Rose, and they distributed leaflets denouncing the Nazi regime. A statement that has reverberated in my head to demonstrate what a vile regime this was concerned the lecturer Huber?

So, like the movie “Sophie Scholl, the Final Days” this book and other versions of the story make them into heroes. Dec 17, Dakota Caudill rated it it was amazing.
