|About the Book|
With all these people dying for the regime, it is high time someone died against it -- Sophie Scholl, February 1943See also my review of At the Heart of the White Rose: Letters and Diaries of Hans and Sophie Scholl edited by Inge Jens, sister of Hans and Sophie. Every time I think of the group called the White Rose, which is not every day but should be, I feel uplifted and humbled.Always remember, Hans and Sophie were not the only members of the group, not the only martyrs, though the best-known. Christoph Probst was guillotined with them on Feb 22, 1943. Professor Kurt Huber, Willi Graf and Alexander Schmorell were executed a few months later.
