The White Rose was a non-violent, intellectual resistance group in Nazi Germany which was led by five students (and one professor) at the University of Munich, including Hans Scholl, Alexander Schmorell, Willi Graf, Christopher Probst, and Sophie Scholl. The group conducted an anonymous leaflet and graffiti campaign that called for active opposition to the Nazi regime. Their activities started in Munich on 27 June 1942, and ended with the arrest of the core group by the Gestapo on 18 February 1943. They, as well as other members and supporters of the group who carried on distributing the pamphlets, faced show trials by the Nazi People's Court, and many of them were sentenced to death or imprisonment.
But their message did not end that winter, it was taken up and carried on by others, even after their deaths.
