In Part One, Tom Herring and Dr Alexandra Lloyd take us into the world of the White Rose. We’ll find out who they were, how they were connected, and unpack the question of what led them to resist and ultimately risk everything.
“...soon there won’t be anything but politics, and as long as politics is this confused and evil, turning away from it would be cowardly.” - Sophie Scholl (1940).
This episode features choral music by Paul Ben-Haim, Heinrich Schütz, Philip Moore and Max Reger.
