Die Weisse Rose

Today is Sunday, 22 February 2009.

The White Rose (Die Weisse Rose) was a nonviolent resistance movement of students and a professor of philosophy and musicology at the University of Munich. They produced and disseminated leaflets denouncing fascism and the war from June 1942 until their betrayal in February 1943.

On this date in 1943, the first of their number, Sophie Scholl, her brother Hans Scholl, and their comrade, Christoph Probst, were beheaded.

All honour.
