Two accomplished narrators, Elizabeth Wiley and Heather Henderson, recount the chronicle of the White Rose, a cluster of German students who opposed Hitler in 1942 and 1943. The focus is on Hans and Sophie Scholl, siblings of the author. Both narrators are articulate and polished as they engage listeners in the hopeless but courageous struggle of this resistance group. Five male narrators provide documentation following the historical account. Listeners hear the exact words (in English) of the leaflets that condemned the young students, and there is postwar political commentary as well. Another narrator, Kaylee Harwood, reads the words of Elsa, Sophie's cellmate, and in her voice can be heard the sorrow and horror of cruel injustice.
