Storyline

During the Second World War, a small group of students at Munich University begin to question the decisions and sanity of Germany's Nazi government. The students form a resistance cell which they name the "White Rose" after a newsletter that is secretly distributed to the student body. At first small in numbers and fearful of discovery, the White Rose begins to gain massive support after a Nazi Gauleiter nearly incites a student riot after a provokative speech. At this point, the matter is taken over by the German Gestapo, who pledge to hunt down and destroy the members of the White Rose. Written by Anthony Hughes <husnock31@hotmail.com>

User Reviews

Excellent movie
2 August 2000 | by action-6See all my reviews

"Die Weisse Rose"(The White Rose)is a movie about resistance against Hitler and The Nazi-pary("NSDAP")INSIDE Nazi-Germany. It is hard for many people(especially Americans)to believe that not all Germans were Nazis and followed Hitler. The movie is about a resistance group called "The White Rose" at the university in Munich("München" in German), and it also describes how many people didn`t now about what happened at the front, with Russian prisoners-of-war and the jews. Hans and Sophie were brave people who stood up against the Nazi-tyrrany, and the actors in those roles did a very good job. 9/10
