Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

How “White Rose” members fought against Hitler's nazi regime 70 years ago

2012-07-07

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.
