Conscience before Conformity: The White Rose Resistance to the Nazis

Much has been written and studied about the Holocaust. And, like other atrocities, we tend to focus on the crimes and the villains rather than the victims and heroes of the story. During the Nazi regime, citizens all over Europe worked to dismantle the party. Today, we look at the story of the German White Rose resistance and the life of Sophie Scholl. Paul Shrimpton joins us.
