about

From Newbery medalist and nonfiction master Russell Freedman, the suspenseful, poignant true story of students in Nazi Germany who dared to resist Hitler?s regime.In his signature eloquent prose, backed up by thorough research, Russell Freedman tells the story of Austrian-born Hans Scholl and his sister Sophie. They belonged to Hitler Youth as young children, but began to doubt the Nazi regime. As older students, the Scholls and a few friends formed the White Rose, a campaign of active resistance to Hitler and the Nazis. Risking imprisonment or even execution, the White Rose members distributed leaflets urging Germans to defy the Nazi government. Their belief that freedom was worth dying for will inspire young readers to stand up for what they believe in.&nbsp Archival photographs and prints, source notes, bibliography, index.
Russell Freedman has received a Newbery Medal, two Newbery Honors, the Sibert Medal, and countless other accolades including a National Humanities Medal. He lives in New York City.
