Sophie Scholl: Daring Activist of World War II

During World War II, Germany’s Nazi forces stormed across Europe, committing horrific crimes against Jewish people and others. In 1942, 21-year-old Sophie Scholl formed a student-led, anti-Nazi organization called the White Rose. Their goal: distribute informational pamphlets to draw public attention to Nazi crimes—and, ultimately, stop them. Scholl’s activism and resistance eventually led to her capture and trial before the Nazi regime. In this full-color graphic novel, discover more about this daring woman who faced the enemies of World War II.

School Library Journal - Margaret Nunes, former Librarian, Gwinnett County Public Library, GA

"The authors and illustrators of these graphic narratives do an excellent job of conveying suspense; readers unfamiliar with the stories about Scholl and Wake will find themselves especially eager to turn the pages. The tales of the nurses and the WACS sensitively portray the difficult circumstances the women found themselves in and how they were able to rise above their respective trials and tribulations. . . . The excellent narratives combined with engaging drawings do a fine job of introducing readers to important players in a crucial point of history. Purchase should definitely be considered by school and public libraries." - School Library Journal
