sophieWe Will Not Be Silent: the White Rose Student Resistance Movement That Defied Adolf Hitler by Russell Freedman


Freedman, the author of many award-winning children’s books, turns his attention to Austrian-born Hans Scholl and his sister Sophie. Although they joined the Hitler Youth as young children, they turned against the Nazi regime and formed the White Rose, a group that actively resisted Hitler and the Nazis. Although they risked imprisonment and execution, the White Rose members distributed leaflets urging Germans to defy the Nazi government. An inspirational story for young readers.
