I did not know before of the White Rose, an undercover resistence organization of university students during Hitler's Nazi regime in Germany during World War II. Six brave students printed leaflets and distributed them anonymously in an effort to create resistance among the German population to the increasing fascist rule of Hitler. All six were caught by the Gestapo and guillotined.

In this moving graphic novel, we are introduced to those students who gave their lives to attempt to bring freedom back to Germany. At the end of the graphic novel are translations of the leaflets which they distributed. Although Nazi Germany no longer exists, the message this graphic novel is trying to promote is very clear. Do not betray your personal principles to ever, ever give up on freedom. Freiheit, which means freedom in German, is the name of this graphic novel which is a lesson in bravery.

I'm releasing this book for...
