Hans Scholl and Sophie Scholl

New exhibition in Israel shows how one brave group tried to resist the Nazis

It was the summer of 1942 when medical students Hans Scholl and Alexander Schmorell distributed the first four of six “Leaflets of the White Rose” in the German city of Munich.

The leaflets expressed anger and astonishment over the apathy of Germans at the time, stating that everyone not actively engaging in the liberation of the Germans from the Nazi dictatorship was equally guilty of its crimes.

    dw.com is a haven for a fairly disgusting bunch of hypocrites.
    The White Rose group were devout Christians which seems to have missed any mention.
