Formed by University of Munich students and their professor, The White Rose was a small, non-violent Nazi resistance group in Germany who spoke out against Nazi policies. Between June 1942 and February 1943, the members created and distributed leaflets that called for the active opposition of the German people to Adolf Hitler's regime. Seven members were executed in February 1943 and many others were imprisoned. The group's sixth leaflet, their last, known as the “Manifesto of the Students of Munich,” was later airdropped over Germany in June 1943 by Allied planes.
