White Rose

Amazon.com Rating:

Disillusioned by the propaganda of Nazi Germany, Sophie Scholl, her brother, and his fellow soldiers formed the White Rose, a group that wrote and distributed anonymous letters criticizing the Nazi regime and calling for action from their fellow German citizens. The following year, Sophie and her brother were arrested for treason and interrogated for information about their collaborators. After a short show trial, she was sentenced to death — and executed mere hours afterward.

This stunning debut novel in verse recounts the lives of Sophie and her friends and highlights their brave stand against fascism in Nazi Germany. Gorgeous and timely, it simultaneously reminds readers of the dangers of staying silently complicit and honors the courage of those who stand up in opposition to oppression and brutality.

Description

"Wilson traces the growing rage and rebellion that drive her into collaboration with Hans and university students to publish and distribute leaflets of resistance to the German public — an offense punishable by death. Occasional entries by a Gestapo investigator pursuing the group create mounting tension, even though the book’s opening scene reveals the outcome of his mission: Sophie’s capture and subsequent trial. Illuminating back matter on the real-life Sophie and the White Rose movement adds additional context to this strong addition to the canon of WWII fiction for young readers." — Publishers Weekly
