We Will Not Be Silent: The White Rose Student Resistance Movement That Defied Adolf Hitler by Russell Freedman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ohhhh, I wish I still taught World History to high school students! This would definitely be on the reading list. A guillotine? In World War II Germany? How did I not know that form of death existed in Nazi Germany? I love these types of stories--I wish I had known about this when I went to Munich a few years ago. Now I'll have to go back and visit the monument.
I just reread and this and I showed way too much excitement about this book--but it's very teachable. And very 2017. Love how the teens explain why they were sucked into the Hitler youth, but grew disillusioned with the sameness and lack of intelligence.
