    Strange title as if the book has a central character, it is Sophie s brother Hans Possibly the title is a publisher s decision to follow on the success of the Sophie Scholl film Much is conjecture particular conversations, scnes and so forth but robust imaginative insight is crucial to good history The book charts not only the history of the White Rose resistance movement but the whole network of interior resistance within Nazi Germany There are also succinct interpretations of German na Strange title as if the book has a central character, it is Sophie s brother Hans Possibly the title is a publisher s decision to follow on the succ...

    I watched the movie Sophie Scholl a couple years ago and, I ll admit it, I was so moved I cried I knew there had to be books about the true story behind the movie, and found this book secondhand It then promptly became lost in the shuffle and giant pile of other books I ve read since I wish I had read it sooner.The book follows the very true and very amazing story of the White Rose, a group of university students who wrote and distributed leaflets calling Germans to revolt against Hitler duri I watched the movie Sophie Scholl a couple y...

    This is an updated version of The Shattering of the German Night, recommended to me by Dr George Wittenstein, a personal friend of the Scholls.The story is a moving one, no matter who writes it, but this new edition wascarefully researched yet maintains an extremely compelling narrative.
