The White Rose Resistance Movement in Germany was led by Hans Scholl and later his sister Sophie. I discovered their existence in a very unique way. I was searching for a comprehensive secondary school for my 12 year old daughter in Berlin . This is not the usual schooling approache. Guided to the "Sophie Scholl Oberschule" in Berlin I discovered possibly the most advanced and liberal minded teaching methods open to kids today. I traced the name of the school and was adament in getting my daughter placed there. I failed. This made me return to Scotland with her to allow her to attend comprehensive education. In between times I have gathered quite a bit of information on the movement and lives of the Scholl family. Their spirit lives on in many facets of German life, and especially in the educational one. Their ethos of truthfulness and righteousness engulfs you in this wonderful school.
