Summary
This is a true story of how several students and their teachers opposed Hitler. As individuals, they believed that the war started by Hitler was wrong and that the racist dictatorship had to be toppled. Gradually, they came together as a small and secret opposition group. They decided to act in order to realize their goals. Eventually, many of them paid with their lives ... the main square of the university is called Geschwister-Scholl-Platz, named for the brother and sister, Hans and Sophie Scholl, who were among the founders of this group, which was called the White Rose. Every year on February 22, the anniversary of the first executions, a public commemoration is held.
