Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

On Feb. 18, 1943, Hans and Sophie Scholl, a brother and sister, were arrested at the University of Munich for secretly (or not so secretly) putting out leaflets calling on Germans to revolt against Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime. Days later, Hans and Sophie, along with friend Christoph Probst, were tried, convicted and executed. In the previous year Hans had founded a group of students, who called themselves “The White Rose.” The group wrote and distributed four leaflets aimed at educated Germans. The leaflets made their way across Germany and to several other occupied countries.
