"Their spirit lives"
During the Nazi regime, Hitler had eliminated nearly all of the freedoms that Germans had previously enjoyed, including the freedom of speech. In the 1930’s a German, resistance group known as the White Rose formed, calling for nonviolent resistance to Hitler’s regime through pamphlets. Spreading pamphlets all over Germany, the White Rose encouraged other groups to form in order to fight for the thing that all Germans wanted: freedom. Despite ultimately being dissolved with the execution of most of its members, they still inspired other resistance groups and influenced the Nazi party to form new resistance laws to prevent something like this from happening again. The White Rose still managed to not only break the stereotypes the rest of the world had placed on Germans as a result of Hitler’s actions, but also proved to the rest of the world that the German people really did care about the Nazis' actions during World War II.
