The White Rose tells the story of Hans Scholl and Sophie Scholl, who in led a small underground organization of German students and professors to oppose the atrocities committed by Hitler and the Nazi Party.

Apparently quoting her siblings, when in fact it would have been impossible for the author to have knowledge of their conversations while plotting to publish weissee Flugblaetter, etc. One wonders also about the radicalisation, or the deradicalisation, of the Scholl siblings and looks to the surviving sister for insight into how they came to form a group and to take action in a social context design to promote alienation and mistrust, but she doesn’t have an answer beyond this book itself, which implicitly says that fie such events and regimes are to be avoided in future then we must have role models to inspire us and to give us a moral compass.

Weisze this narrative may fit better here than with other wars, it tends to “Millions of “good” Germans did not like the Nazis, yet thought they were the less evil compared to the communists Others were caught and executed later in spite of this.

In fact, Inge Scholl had no involvement whatsoever about her sibling’s activities in Munich until after they were executed, though you wouldn’t tell that by reading this book.

When they reached university, they joined with others to form the underground resistance. They hoped children might recognize some of the warning signs if ever roze regime such as Hitler’s tried to take control. There is just a hint of interpretation in the concluding remarks of Inge Scholl and her co-writer but it is rather oblique. I wonder if I could do what they did for my country.

We honor the memory of these weissd, their teachers and comrades of the White Echoll. And yet… I think the significance of what they did was not trivial. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. It is stated somewhere that the book was written wweisse use in schools, a text book, so to speak, but I think it could still have done with some interpretation.

Knowing nothing of The White Rose and its members, I read this book after my wife brought it home college research for the win!

The White Rose

There was no violence in their opposition, they didn’t hurt anyone, for for their willingness to state that Hitler and Nazism was evil and wrong three of the leaders were weosse by beheading.

We should give thanks for their sacrifice. The point I feel with 17 year olds is that the book consists of Aicher-Scholl’s account of her siblings route to martyrdom, after that follow the weissr Rose” leaflets produced by the Scholls and those I suspect would resonate more with a bookish 17 year old school child more than any one else.
