Resistance - Another Side of Nazi Germany
Greene, Matthew A.

Resistance to the government did exist in Germany during the years of Nazi rule. All Germans were not either murderers or accomplices. Nor were they all cowards who watched and listened, but did nothing while crimes were committed in their name. As we shall see in the following chapters, many Germans risked their lives and died because they felt they had to do something to oppose the German government. Why did these people act against the government? What did they want to accomplish? What did they accomplish? These are important questions. They must be considered and the people who resisted Hitler must be remembered when we think of Nazi Germany. For, just as the stories of Kristallnacht, the S.S. and Auschwitz are a part of the history of Germany from 1933 to 1945, so too are July 20, 1944, the Kreisau Circle and the White Rose.
