Hans and Sophie Scholl

The Holocaust

At great personal risk, siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl, along with a group of young, like-minded idealists, formed the White Rose resistance to circulate anti-Nazi leaflets during World War II. This compelling primary-source account chronicles the history and legacy of these courageous activists who stood up for their beliefs--and ultimately became martyrs to their cause--at a time when few dared to openly condemn Nazi atrocities. A timeline provides historical context, and leaflet excerpts are interspersed throughout the text, reminding us that even in the most seemingly hopeless of times, young people can make a difference.
