                        • The assassination attempt on
                          Hitler was set up on July 1944 by
                          the White Rose.

                        • Even though the leaders of the
                          White Rose weren’t Jewish they
                          still felt what was happening to
                          the Jews was cruel and unfair.

                        • The White Rose was set up in
                          many cities such as Hamburg,
                          Freiburg, Berlin and Vienna.

                 • The White Rose decided to start making
                   leaflets that denounce the regime of the
                   Nazis.

                 • They spread these leaflets around to
                   students throughout the University of Munich
                   so they could have more support in rebelling
                   against the German army.
