In 1942, a group of German university students decided that they had to resist the Nazis. They published leaflets critical of Hitler and his regime.

Hans Scholl, his sister Sophie Scholl and their courageous friends were some of the few who tried to stand up to Hitler. They formed The White Rose, a secret society of resistance. The White Rose mailed flyers all over Germany revealing the crimes of the Third Reich and demanding the end of Hitler's brutal regime.
Learning Guide Excerpt
To give you a sense of how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to develop lesson plans, and by parents to supplement school curriculum or for homeschooling, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to The White Rose.
For reasons still debated by historians and sociologists, the German people did not mount mass protests against the atrocities committed in their name by the Nazis. In this "dark German night," the actions of the White Rose stand out as one of the few organized groups that sought to oppose the Nazi police state. In 1942, led by Hans Scholl and Alexander Schmorell, two medical students in Munich, a few students, one professor and their supporters moved from silent disagreement to distributing leaflets strongly critical of the Nazi regime. At night, they painted "Down With Hitler" on the walls of public buildings. They planned further resistance. All the while they knew that death awaited them if they were caught. Their actions led to additional, but minimal, resistance activities in Hamburg, Berlin and Freiburg.
The Learning Guide to the film The White Rose contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
