A quote in 1940 from a leaflet the White Rose Society, “Isn’t it true that every

honest German is ashamed of his government these days? Who among us can

imagine the degree of shame that will come upon us and our children when the

veil falls from our faces and the awful crimes that infinitely exceed any human

measure are exposed to the light of day.”

Origin of the name of this White Rose Society inspired by a Spanish novel.

Several courageous students from Munich, Germany would comprise The White

Rose Society in the early days of World War II Germany.

They would witness some of the atrocities of the east like the ghettos at Warsaw

and Lodz.

The main characters mostly in their early 20’s were:  Sophie Scholl, her brother

Hans School, Alex Schomorell, Willi Graf and Christoph Probst, Traut Lafrenz,

Lieselotte (Lilo) Berndl and Falk Harnack.

Their music/philosophy teacher Kurt Huber also was associated with the group.

They were funded by Eugen Grimminger and his go between secretary Tilly Hahn

who supplied them with office equipment and money.

Their goal was to flood Germany with leaflets which showed opposition to Hitler’s

regime.

They flooded the country with thousands and used graffiti to get their point across.

They had been inspired by many groups including the church at the time.  They

spearheaded an anonymous leaflet campaign.  This called for the active opposition

against oppressive Nazi tyranny.

The allies had received one of their last, the sixth leaflet which was smuggled

out through Scandinavia to the UK.  Later it would be dropped by plane all over

Germany called “The Manifesto of the Students of Munich.”  They would have the

last laugh.  Their seventh leaflet cost them their lives and jailed others.  They

would be captured by the Gestapo in 1943 and beheaded.

Germany as early as 2003 has commemorated them and others for their courageous

movement against an oppressive fascism and what they opposed as militarism at

the time.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true. —Soren Kierkegaard. "...truth is true even if nobody believes it, and falsehood is false even if everybody believes it. That is why truth does not yield to opinion, fashion, numbers, office, or sincerity--it is simply true and that is the end of it" - Os Guinness, Time for Truth, pg.39. “He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
