On This Day



On This Day… Lest We Forget!

Written by: George Chittenden : 02 Jul 2019

It was on this day, 18th February, back in 1943 when members of an anti-Nazi group, the White Rose movement were arrested. The non-violent, intellectual resistance group consisted of several students and a professor from the University of Munich.

Hans Scholl, Sophie Scholl & Christopher Probst.

Hans Scholl, Sophie Scholl & Christopher Probst.

The group whose crimes included distributing pamphlets and spraying graffiti, stood trial at the Nazi "People's Court" known as Volksgerichtshof just days later. On February 22nd, 1943, three of the group were found guilty of treason and sentenced to death. They were executed the same day by guillotine at Stadelheim Prison.

They included siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl. All three were noted for the courage with which they faced interrogation by the Gestapo, their trial and even deaths. Today we remember those students who had the courage to make a stand.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
