"From its inception to its end, Sophie Scholl and the White Rose is an account of German resistance to the Third Reich. Subject of the German film Sophie Scholl: The Last Days, this is the story of five university students and their professor, who, as the White Rose group, launched a clandestine campaign against the Third Reich. Declaring "We will not be silent! We are your bad conscience!" they exhorted the German people to stand up and fight for freedom, and risked all to reveal the persecution of the Jews months before news reached the outside world." "The narrative takes the reader from the early days of their crusade through their arrest and interrogation, and sets the historical and emotional stage for their daring exploits against one of the most terrifying regimes in history. Summarily executed for treason, they are now regarded as iconic figures of resistance the world over." "Included in the book are all seven of the original leaflets, transcripts of the trial and sentencing, photographs of the group members, and a foreword by author and radio personality Studs Terkel, making this an invaluable addition to World War II literature and window into human resilience."--BOOK JACKET.
