The Girl Who Said No to the Nazis Sophie Scholl and the Plot Against Hitler

Written by Haydn Kaye

Part of the True Adventures Series

The Girl Who Said No to the Nazis Sophie Scholl and the Plot Against Hitler Synopsis

In 1942, a young woman named Sophie Scholl arrives in Munich to begin her studies at university. Reunited with her beloved brother Hans, a medical student, she finds new friends in a group of young Germans united in their passion for jazz music, dancing, art and philosophy - all things that the Nazi regime regards with deep suspicion. In her lectures, Sophie hears whispers of a mysterious group called The White Rose who dare to defy the Nazis. Incendiary leaflets begin to appear, protesting the betrayals and atrocities of the fascist regime and calling on others to act. At the same time, Sophie discovers that her new friends, including her brother, are united by more than just their love of art and music. Soon, she will become another petal of The White Rose and be drawn into a world of rebellion and subterfuge, compelled to carry out acts of great danger and courage.

About Haydn Kaye

Haydn Kaye has loved history since he was very young. His mother helped to spark his interest by telling him what it was like to be a child during World War Two. Then he went on to study history at Oxford University, before teaching and writing about historical subjects ranging from the pyramids to the Olympics, and from inventor Thomas Edison to writer Roald Dahl. His latest books for younger readers have been the life stories of Emmeline Pankhurst and Albert Einstein.
