During World War II, Germany’s Nazi forces stormed across Europe, committing horrific crimes against Jewish people and others. In 1942, 21-year-old Sophie Scholl formed a student-led, anti-Nazi organization called the White Rose. Their goal: distribute informational pamphlets to draw public attention to Nazi crimes—and, ultimately, stop them. Scholl’s activism and resistance eventually led to her capture and trial before the Nazi regime. In this full-color graphic novel, discover more about this daring woman who faced the enemies of World War II.
