In the spring and summer of 1942, five young German students and one professor at the University of Munich crossed the threshold of toleration to enter the realms of resistance, danger and death. Protesting in the name of principles Hitler thought he had killed forever, Sophie Scholl and other members of the White Rose realized that the ?Germanization’ Hitler sought to enforce was cruel and inhuman, and that they could not be content to remain silent in its midst.

From its inception to its end, the captivating story of Sophie Scholl and the White Rose is an uplifting and enlightening account of German resistance to the Third Reich. With detailed chronicles of Scholl’s arrest and trial before Hitler’s Hanging Judge, Roland Freisler, as well as appendices containing all of the leaflets the White Rose wrote and circulated exhorting Germans to stand up and fight back, this volume is an invaluable addition to World War II literature and a fascinating window into human resilience in the face of dictatorship.

A beautiful tribute to some heroic young people in the face of Nazi terror. The story is touching, and wonderfully suspenseful despite the foregone conclusion that is the fate of its subjects.

The beast in man had lifted its mask and the time of euphemistic niceties and rationalizations was over. [After Kristallnacht, November 9, 1938.]
