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.

when i first watched the movie Sophie Scholl:the final days, i knew that there was good in this world after all. sophie scholl and the white rose opened my eyes to new depths where i knew i had to do something in this world that can reverse evil. this book gave me the recipe to reach this effort. it is well written in full detail.

I give this book five stars, not because of its structure but because of its content. For anyone who is a student of Germany, its social structure, WWI, and WWII (actually one continuous event), this book is fascinating and a confirmation of the confilicts and cross currents at large in German society following WWI. BY ALL MEANS read the entire book (which is short) including the documents appended and their footnotes. It is here that some of the best insight can be found. This book was originally written for use in the German school system. No punches are pulled.
