Sophie Scholl and her brother Hans have been good-looking, vibrant collage scholars in 1942 Germany. As contributors of the Hitler early life, that they had as soon as been enthusiastic supporters of the German renewal promised via nationwide Socialism. yet as their cognizance of Nazi barbarism grew, so did their ethical outrage.

Hans and Sophie shaped a small crew of like-minded acquaintances, which at the beginning integrated scientific scholars, a pupil of philosophy, and a fifty-year-old professor. They self-identified as Christians from numerous traditions-Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox-and they known as themselves the White Rose. In a darkened studio lent them by way of an artist, they published eloquent anti-Nazi leaflets, which they ingeniously unfold all through Germany.

A Noble Treason tells the real tale of this underground team on the college of Munich that instigated, equipped, and conducted the 1st overt resistance to Hitler's regime. What supplies A Noble Treason its unforgettable and encouraging caliber is the character, personality, and braveness of the White Rose participants, as they resisted the pull of wartime patriotism and overcame their worry of the negative fee they'd pay for his or her dissidence.

The tale of the White Rose is one in every of faith-inspired idealism in lethal clash with ideological tyranny. Its topic is the final word victory of that idealism regardless of its bloody-and doubtless final-destruction by means of the state.
