Review:

"...Could shake your life forever....Not a word is wasted in this tightly woven tale." -- DAYTON DAILY NEWS

"Dumbach and Newborn have told their compelling story beautifully...." -- WASHINGTON JEWISH WEEK

"The animated narrative reads like a suspense novel." -- THE NEW YORK TIMES

"The story they tell...is heart--wrenching and inspiring...a story few readers will forget easily." -- THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

"Unusually powerful and compelling....Among the indispensable literature of modern political culture." -- DAS PARLIAMENT (The official publication of the German Bundestag)

From Publishers Weekly:

In 1942, in wartime Munich, a group of medical students calling themselves the White Rose circulated anti-Nazi tracts aimed at fomenting resistance among Germans. "We will not be silent, we are your bad conscience; the White Rose will not leave you in peace!" they declared. Within months, the group's calls for sabotage of the Nazi war machine were heard throughout Germany, prompting an immediate Gestapo crackdown that resulted in the trial and execution of the student leaders. In this detailed, dramatic account, Dumbach and Newborn draw on documents and interviews to re-create the stirring outburst of opposition and its sources in the Catholic and existential beliefs of the students. The White Rose tracts, later distributed throughout Germany and occupied Europe, brought hope and encouragement to prisoners and subjugated peoples.
