The White Rose

This morning it was light when I left home to catch my bus at 6.30am. The day then grew into a beautiful spring day, and as it did so, the words of Sophie Scholl echoed in my head for some reason.

Unbeknown to me, today marks 73 years since her brutal execution by the Nazis.

If you’re unfamiliar with her, then please check out this article. It really is an excellent read, especially if you’re into your War time history.

They were guillotined 72 years ago today. And they deserve remembering.

If you’ve never heard of The White Rose movement, this is as good a place as any to start.

Enjoy.
