White Rose

The White Rose was a non-violent, intellectual resistance group in the Third Reich led by a group of students including Hans and Sophie Scholl. They attended the University of Munich; the group conducted an anonymous leaflet and graffiti campaign that called for active opposition to the Nazi regime. Their activities started in Munich on 27 June 1942, ended with the arrest of the core group by the Gestapo on 18 February 1943. They, as well as other members and supporters of the group who carried on distributing the pamphlets, faced show trials by the Nazi People's Court, many of them were sentenced to death or imprisonment. Hans and Sophie Scholl and Christoph Probst were executed by guillotine four days after their arrest, on February 22nd, 1943. During the trial, Sophie interrupted the judge multiple times. No defendants were given any opportunity to speak; the group wrote and distributed their pamphlets in the greater Munich region. On, secret carriers brought copies to other cities in the southern parts of Germany.

In total, the White Rose authored six leaflets, which were multiplied and spread, in a total of about 15,000 copies. They denounced the Nazi regime's crimes and oppression, called for resistance. In their second leaflet, they denounced the persecution and mass murder of the Jews. By the time of their arrest, the members of the White Rose were just about to establish contacts with other German resistance groups like the Kreisau Circle or the Schulze-Boysen/Harnack group of the Red Orchestra. Today, the White Rose is well known both within worldwide. Students from the University of Munich comprised the core of the White Rose: the siblings Hans Scholl and Sophie Scholl, Alexander Schmorell, Willi Graf, Christoph Probst, Kurt Huber, a professor of philosophy and musicology, they were supported by other people, including: Traute Lafrenz, Katharina Schüddekopf, Lieselotte "Lilo" Ramdohr, Jürgen Wittenstein, Marie-Luise Jahn, Falk Harnack, Hubert Furtwängler, Wilhelm Geyer, Manfred Eickemeyer, Josef Söhngen, Heinrich Guter, Heinrich Bollinger, Helmut Bauer, Harald Dohrn, Hans Conrad Leipelt, Gisela Schertling, Rudi Alt and Wolfgang Jaeger.

Most were in their early twenties. Wilhelm Geyer taught Alexander Schmorell how to make the tin templates used in the graffiti campaign. Eugen Grimminger of Stuttgart funded their operations. Grimminger was arrested on 2 March 1943, sentenced to ten years in a penal institution for high treason by the "People's Court" on 19 April 1943, imprisoned in Ludwigsburg penal institution until April 1945, his wife Jenny was murdered in the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp on 2 December 1943. Grimminger's secretary Tilly Hahn contributed her own funds to the cause, acted as go-between for Grimminger and the group in Munich, she carried supplies such as envelopes, an additional duplicating machine from Stuttgart to Munich. In addition, a group of students in the city of Ulm distributed a number of the group's leaflets and were arrested and tried. Among this group were Sophie Scholl's childhood friend Susanne Hirzel and her teenage brother Hans Hirzel and Franz Josef Müller. White Rose survivor Jürgen Wittenstein described what it was like for ordinary Germans to live in Nazi Germany: The government—or rather, the party—controlled everything: the news media, police, the armed forces, the judiciary system, travel, all levels of education from kindergarten to universities, all cultural and religious institutions.

Political indoctrination started at a early age, continued by means of the Hitler Youth with the ultimate goal of complete mind control. Children were exhorted in school to denounce their own parents for derogatory remarks about Hitler or Nazi ideology; the activities of the White Rose started in the autumn of 1942. This was a time, critical for the Nazi regime. In Summer 1942, the German Wehrmacht was preparing a new military campaign in the southern part of the East front to regain the initiative after their earlier defeat close to Moscow; this German offensive was very successful, but came to a standstill in the autumn of 1942. In February 1943, the German army had faced a major defeat in the Battle of Stalingrad. During this time, the authors of the pamphlets could neither be discovered, nor could the campaign be stopped by the Nazi authorities; when Hans and Sophie Scholl were discovered and arrested whilst distributing leaflets at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, the regime reacted brutally.

As the "Volksgerichtshof" was not bound to the law, but led by Nazi ideology, its actions were declared unlawful in post-war Germany. Thus, the execution of the White Rose group members, among many others, is considered as judicial murder; the members of the core group all shared an academic background as students at Munich University. The Scholl siblings, Christoph Probst, Willi Graf and Alexander Schmorell were all raised by liberal, independently thinking and wealthy parents. Alexander Schmorell was born in Russia, his first language was Russian. After he and Hans Scholl had become friends at the university, Alexander invited Hans to his parents' home, where Hans met Christoph Probst at the beginning of 1941. Alexander Schmorell and Christoph Probst had been friends since their school days; as Christoph's father had been divorced and had married again to a Jewish wife, the effects of the Nazi Nuremberg Laws, Nazi racial ideology had impacts on both Christoph's and Alexander's lives from early on.

The ideas and thoughts of the German Youth Movement, founded in 1896, had a major impact
