This blog was originally published on the NUS website.
At the University of Munich in 1942, a group of students known as the White Rose group began to distribute anonymous pamphlets criticising the Nazi regime. They sent them to other German cities, managing to produce 6 different leaflets before being arrested by the Gestapo (the Nazi secret police), put on trial, and killed.
Why is this story relevant to British students in 2017?
