Why did Hans and Sophie Scholl die on February 22, 1943? They were executed for belonging to the White Rose, a small circle of German students which printed and distributed leaflets opposing the Nazi regime during World War II.
This story of integrity and courage, told by the Scholls’ sister, describes how the White Rose grew out of the students’ conviction that they could not remain silent while witnessing unparalleled oppression and inhumanity in a country otherwise grown mute. Including photographs, the White Rose leaflets, personal letters, and Nazi documents, the book is a tragic and inspiring portrait of the principles for which the Scholls, and many of their friends, died.
