Sophie Scholl fu condannata dal Tribunale del Popolo di Monaco di Baviera per tradimento contro lo Stato e il Führer e ghigliottinata il 22 febbraio 1943, all'età di 21 anni. (fonte: Google Books)

A bit hard to categorise this book, part history part dramatisation. One of those book which are hard to `love` but have to read. Everyone has to know the life and deeds of those who raised their voices in the middle of a world burning and protested against the inhumanity and barbarism of the fascist state. Were they idealistic and naive? Partly true but that`s one of the reasons their names will be remembered forever. ( )

Sad and pathetic. A small group of German students led (more or less) by Hans Scholl and opposed (more or less) to Nazism picked the name “The White Rose” to describe themselves. Nobody’s quite sure where the name came from; best guess is a novel of that name about peasant exploitation in Mexico. At any rate, being college students, they decided the best way they could overthrow the Third Reich was by writing long, pedantic leaflets full of quotations from various philosophers and distributing them on their campus. This was more or less the same thing students from my generation did with Marxist propaganda. Those students of my generation went on to become investment bankers and tax attorneys; the kids of the “White Rose” went on to be guillotined by the Gestapo.

Sophie herself was, alas, something of a nonentity. She was the only female in the group so (it being the 1940s) they made her the secretary. Did she join because her brother was the leader? Because she had a teenage crush on one or more of the other members, as so many of the Marxist groupies of my college years did? Because she had an actual belief in the cause? Combination thereof? Not enough data to say. Later Germans, desperate to demonstrate that they weren’t all Nazis, seized on The White Rose as proof and, in a 2003 poll of the greatest Germans of all time, picked Hans and Sophie Scholl as 4th. (The whole list – rather telling):

* Konrad Adenauer

* Martin Luther

* Karl Marx

* Hans und Sophie Scholl

* Willy Brandt

* Johann Sebastian Bach

* Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

* Johannes Gutenberg

* Otto von Bismarck

* Albert Einstein

It was a sure thing they would get caught; to add insult to injury it wasn’t a crack Gestapo counterintelligence team that picked them up, but a college janitor, who grabbed them for littering when they dumped a box of leaflets off a balcony. By all accounts they went to their deaths bravely enough. There are a couple of pictures of Sophie; in one she’s serious and rather sad looking. In another she’s seeing off a bunch of friends as they head for the Eastern Front, looking young and brave in their new feldgrau uniforms. Sophie is standing in the back, looking over a fence, and pensively holding a white rose. She was 22 when she was beheaded.

The White Rose didn’t even cause anyone in the Third Reich to blink. It’s unlikely that anybody even bothered to read the pretentious leaflets, since being caught with one would at the least lead to an unpleasant experience. Instead of a modern version of the 300 standing at their equivalent of Thermopylae, “The White Rose” comes across as a bunch of feckless adolescents, of the sort who in later generations would have the last words “Hey, watch this” when about to win a Darwin Award. Still, they did something – even if it was ineffective and sophomoric – and even if its only effect was to allow later Germans to pat themselves on the back and say “See, we did fight back”.

A good read; there’s not that much information about The White Rose but authors Annette Dumbach and Jud Newborn did yeoman service in tracking it down. Multiple appendices give the actual text (translated) of The White Rose leaflets, plus articles from German and foreign newspapers. An earlier version was titled Shattering the German Night.

rue german martyrs of ww2
By sally tarbox on 2 May 2011
Format: Paperback
in Britain, we tend to imagine the Germans all went along enthusiastically with the Nazis, from joining the Hitler youth, to attending rallies. This book shows another side to the German people, telling the story of siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl and their friends who ultimately went to the guillotine for writing and distributing anti-Nazi leaflets, urging passive resistance. It was also interesting to see how much covert support they had from those around them, even those who weren't members of the White Rose group. A terrible book but one that makes you see a new side to Germany of that era. ( )

This book is more about The White Rose resistance movement than about Sophie Scholl. Nevertheless, it did follow her experience, her brother's experience, and the organization that printed leaflets crying out against the wrongness of the Nazis.

There are other examples from outside the White Rose of resistance against the social and political will of the Nazi regime. Eugenic cleansing was halted to some small degree after a Catholic bishop denounced the killing of people considered unfit from nursing homes and asylums. We must not forget the holocaust. Nor should we forget that while many people did nothing some Germans were voices crying out against the evil in their nation.

The story of Sophie is the slender thread on which the author ties together the story of the White Rose. And her musings in her letters and diaries are unusually deep. She was well educated and from an intellectual upbringing. Some learned people are very academic and scholarly about what they know and believe. And that "knowing" and understanding is what drives and motivates them. And some academic people are driven to learn by the desire to experience life from new or fresh perspectives. Sophie was one of the latter. Her letters often talk about experiencing nature or the beauty of the world along with deep musings on the ethics of human behavior.
