Defying Hitler: The White Rose Pamplets featured in History First

From June 1942 to February 1943, the Munich-based White Rose group distributed pamphlets denouncing the “cancerous tumour” of Nazism and drawing attention to genocide of Jews in Poland, “a crime unparalleled in all human history”. The group, best known today for its members Sophie and Hans Scholl, sent hundreds of pamphlets to academics, doctors and ordinary citizens in the post and delivered others by hand.
