    1. Hans and Sophie Scholl were the most prominent members of the White Rose Nazi resistance group, made up largely of Munich university students and professors who wrote and secretly distributed anti-Nazi flyers. They were exposed after Hans and Sophie were observed throwing flyers in the air in the central hall of the university on February 18, 1943. After a brief show trial presided over by the notorious Nazi judge Roland Freisler, they, along with their friend, Christoph Probst, were executed on [...]

    2. I collect books about the White Rose, of which there are at least a half dozen. This book comes from the heart, though it does not tell us much about the beloved and admired associates of Hans and Sophie like Alexander Schmorell, Willi Graf and Professor Kurt Huber, who were executed later. The story is well-known in Germany but should be better-known in America than it is. It is sublimely heroic and non-violent. See also The Short Life of Sophie Scholl, by Hermann Vinke.There is a dramatization [...]

    3. Hans and Sophie Scholl are regarded as heroes in Germany. Celebrated for their resistance to the Nazis that resulted in their executions, Munich (and the rest of Germany) is riddled with places and buildings named after the Geschwister Scholl (the Scholl siblings). There were others who died resisting Hitler's regime, but the tireless work of their sister Inge after the war and their youth have made them powerful symbols of principled resistance.At the Heart of the White Rose: Letters and Diarie [...]

    4. WOW. This is a very important book that is well written and compelling. I have been reading about the circumstances of WWII this year from many points of view. This book by far exceeds the others. Perhaps it is because I find Sophie Scholl to be a testament to the strength of women. What a courageous, brave, positive minded woman. Her story is one of tragedy and perseverance and by far one of the best I've read. Terribly frightening, yet terribly interesting. Highly recommend. **I received a fre [...]

    5. This is an insightful look at a part of the resistance movement in Germany. It is the diary and letters of a brother and sister that chronicles their journey to believing so strongly in nazi resistance that they eventually gave their lives for it.

    6. Inge Jen's edited volume, At the Heart of the White Rose: Letters and Diaries of Hans and Sophie Scholl, first appeared nearly thirty years ago, but it remains one of the most important literary testaments to a time when some German youth saw the dangers of Nazism and dared to stand up to it. Jen repudiates the trend in White Rose research to rely on rumor and innuendo, and instead dives into the letters and diaries of two of the most significant figures in the movement -- the brother and sister [...]

    7. I received this book free, in exchange for a review, from LibraryThing. This book contains diary excerpts and the personal correspondence of two siblings who were involved in the anti-Nazi movement during WWII in Germany. The abundant footnotes provided a few bits of information about the White Rose organization; however, many of the footnote numbers in the text do not accurately correspond to the footnotes section in the back of the book [personally, I prefer footnotes at the bottom of the page [...]

    8. Very touching true account of Hans & Sophie Scholl, which allows the reader to know them through letters they've penned to their siblings, parents, & various friends. Beautifully written prose containing picturesque, descriptive accounts of locales, living quarters, and in depth feelings about their surroundings are contained within these letters. Although the details given about their activities in The White Rose are somewhat coded( the group they are part of which protests the workings [...]

    9. Faits guère connus, une opposition s’organise en Allemagne nazie par rapport à la folie meurtrière engendrée par le 3e Reich. La Rose blanche, animée entre autres par Hans et Sophie Scholl, incarne cette résistance au sein de l’Université de Munich. À travers des extraits de lettres envoyées aux amis et à la fratrie ainsi que de leurs journaux intimes, nous constatons leur cheminement intérieur et la progression de leur pensée respective. Après avoir procédé à la distribution [...]

    10. I don't want to discount what these kids were trying to achieve, but I found this book to really drag on. I wish it would have been more about the White Rose Organization. I am intrigued by the fact that these kids where more about their spiritual beliefs than political. I am impressed that they took a stand and tried to make things better. I am horrified that they were murdered. I just can't say this book held my attention. I found that about half way through I was skipping through some pages.

    11. ***I won this book in a Giveaway***Hans and Sophie Scholl were loving, intelligent, fractured children in Nazi Germany. They were destroyed by the times they lived in and the ugliness of humanity. Reading their letters was incredibly hardey deserved so much better than they were given. Their faith in God and sense of love for nature was both heartbreaking and invigorating to read. I can only hope that if I'm ever faced with evil of such proportions, I can have a fraction of the strength and com [...]

    12. Heartbreaking, humbling, intense, haunting,and full of the human spirit and faith in a very dark time in history. I find this is one of those books that will stay with you for a lifetime. The intense personal struggles of Hans and Sophie shows that not all Germans were on board with the political situation they were living in during the war. That there was good people who knew what was happening and did not support it and tried to open others eyes to it and paid with their very young lives. A mu [...]

    13. The surviving letters and diary entries of Hans and Sophie Scholl who were executed by the Nazis on Feb. 22, 1943. As primary source information it's not terribly interesting for a casual reader like me. I'm about halfway through (pg 165) but haven't gotten to any of the rebellious sentiments yet, but I'm putting it back on the shelf for another time.

    14. Des confessions intéressantes pour apprendre à connaître ces deux jeunes gens courageux, mais le tout est vraiment très intime (trop, cela m'a parfois gênée de lire leur vie privée, qui aurait dû le rester) et nous en apprend peu sur leurs motivations et actions contre le régime.

    15. If you're looking for a book that delves into the resistance activities of the White Rose in Germany during WWII, this is not the book for you. If you're looking to know more about Hans and Sophie Scholl, the siblings who died together for their beliefs, this book is perfect. The collection of letters and diaries are in the Scholl sibling's own words and depict two like-minded individuals who believed above all in the beauty of Nature and strove to forge a relationship with God. Despite the fact [...]

    16. This book focuses on correspondence and diaries of two siblings who were part of a small, non-violent student resistance group starting at the University of Munich (along with one Professor Huber). "The White Rose" members wrote and distributed leaflets opposing Hitler and the Nazis. They did so, knowing what the likely consequences of their actions would be if they were caught. Hans and Sophie Scholl, along with friend Christoph Probst were caught and executed in 1943 (as were others in the gro [...]

    17. I love getting to know people through their diaries and letters. I already know about the White Rose and Hans and Sophie's resistance activities, and this book was perfect to get to know them as people--their hopes and dreams and frustrations. Their writings are powerful and insightful, beautiful and funny. I put it down feeling profoundly changed and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since. NOTE: The book does have a little commentary about their resistance activities, but if you do [...]

    18. Una testimonianza intima e vibrante.Per conoscere da vicino i valori, le passioni, le speranze di questi due fratelli tedeschi che, seppur giovanissimi, hanno preferito sacrificare le loro vite piuttosto che scendere a patti con le nefandezze del dominio nazista, per non infangare gli ideali di fede, libertà e di giustizia in cui credevano.Il libro si chiude con l'ultima lettera scritta da Sophie il 17 febbraio del 1943, in cui la ragazza parla di gioia, della primavera e della musica di Schube [...]

    19. Fascinating. A glimpse into the lives of a brother and sister who were involved in resistance to Nazi Germany and eventually gave their lives because of it. The letters start in 1937, when Hans was 19 and Sophie 16. They go until just before their arrest in 1943. It's neat to watch the growth in their lives, especially Sophie's increased seeking after God as times grow more difficult and as she gets older and more serious. A good compliment to Sophie Scholl and the White Rose.(The interesting an [...]

    20. La resistenza è anche e soprattutto giovane! Due fratelli, la loro famiglia, i loro amici contro l'incapacità di molti di aprire gli occhi anche oltre il proprio meschino interesse. La loro vicenda è raccontata anche in un film, intenso: Sophie Sholl. Se vi capita non perdetelo. O meglio: cercatelo, se vi sta a cuore la libertà. Anche di stampa!
