The Arrests of the White Rose Begins

The Arrests of the White Rose Begins February 18, 2014


It was today in 1943 when the Nazis began to arrest the members of the White Rose.

This small group of German students and their professor had been posting leaflets denouncing the Nazi regime. They had succeeded in printing and posting six before they were arrested.

Most of the participants would die by guillotine.

While they were a mixed bag of intellectuals of various persuasions, one of their number Alexander Schmorell had become Orthodox. He would be canonized by the Orthodox church for his part in the resistance.

Lives, so short, worth recalling

worth celebrating…
