"Never Too Young to be a Hero": A Holocaust Symposium
In opposition to the Third Reich, students and child resisters faced torture, imprisonment, concentration camp or death. Hans and Sophie Scholl of the White Rose as well as Cato Bontjes van Beek of the Red Orchestra defied authorities by distributing leaflets to awaken the German citizens to the oppressive regime. All were accused of treason and guillotined. Jehovahs Witnesses , young and old, were also targeted and suffered serious repercussions for their faith. All these youths exhibited profound moral courage.
