Thesis Statement
The White Rose
The White Rose Resistance was made up students attending Munich University.
A total of 6 leaflets were produced.
The 7th leaflet was never finished and never distributed.
Hans Scholl, Sophie Scholl, and Christoph Probst were the first, but not the last to be executed for such leaflets.
Later 26 others were indicted.
Sophie and Hans Scholl along with many others were wrongly sentenced. Their actions, although, were not in vain and their leaflets are still remembered all over the world.
Es lebe die Freihet.
Long Live Freedom.
