Synopsis

We Will Not be Silent by Russell Freedman

In his signature eloquent prose, backed up by thorough research, Russell Freedman tells the story of Austrian-born Hans Scholl and his sister Sophie. They belonged to Hitler Youth as young children, but began to doubt the Nazi regime. As older students, the Scholls and a few friends formed the White Rose, a campaign of active resistance to Hitler and the Nazis. Risking imprisonment or even execution, the White Rose members distributed leaflets urging Germans to defy the Nazi government. Their belief that freedom was worth dying for will inspire young readers to stand up for what they believe in. Archival photographs and prints, source notes, bibliography, index.

Reviews

Robert F. Sibert Honor Award winner 2016 Kirkus Prize Finalist Chicago Public Library Best of 2016 Kirkus Best of 2016 Raleigh News & Observer Best of 2016 Nonfiction Detectives: Best of 2016 * A highly readable and well-documented overview of a fascinating aspect of World War II. --School Library Journal, STARRED review * Among the wealth of good Holocaust literature available, Freedman's volume stands out for its focus and concision, effectively placing the White Rose in its historical context, telling the story of Nazi Germany without losing the focus on the White Rose, and doing so in just over 100 pages. --Kirkus, STARRED review * Thoroughly researched, with numerous archival photos, this well-told story of the White Rose opposition unfolds chronologically and with building suspense. --Publishers Weekly, STARRED review As always, Freedman not only writes with clarity and pace but augments his text with primary-source quotes and photographs that add power and immediacy. --Horn Book Magazine
