The moving story of the young Scholls, brother and sister, who by printing and distributing anti-Hitler leaflets in Munich sought to oppose the immoral regime. In 1943 the Nazis caught and killed them. Their courage and their uniqueness make a memorable moment in the annals of resistance, told here in the exasperating style of contemporary popular history: without citation of sources, with scant attention to historical context.
