Other members of the 'White Rose' included two protestant brothers: Hans and Shofie Scholl. There was also Christoph Probst and Willi Graf who were Catholics and Hans Leipelt who was Jewish.

Back in 1942, they decided to take action. For 250 days, they sent post cards to different home addresses, including some that were near the front lines. Those letters denounced the regime and its abuses committed mainly against Jews and the Polish.

One of the letters also called on people to take action, by arguing that if they remained passive, they would contribute to an evil dictatorship.

Despite their efforts, eventually all members were arrested, tried and sentenced to death.
