What was the White Rose movement? -- A threat rises in Germany -- Nonviolent resistance -- The effects of the White Rose movement -- Timeline -- Glossary.
In 1942, a small group formed at the University of Munich to fight the Nazis through nonviolent means. The White Rose movement, as the group came to be known, distributed leaflets that urged their fellow Germans to question Nazi actions and join the resistance. This book traces the group's efforts, and honors the members of the group who paid the ultimate price for their activism.
