Overview


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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Released in 1986 as Shattering the German Night, this was praised by critics, including LJ's reviewer, who found it "superbly written." It masterfully unfolds the story of five German university students and their professor, who formed a Nazi-resistance group dubbed the White Rose. This revised edition contains a ton of new information, a reworked introduction, a foreword by Studs Terkel, additional photos, and much more, expanding this remarkable tale. Essential for public and academic history collections.
