Willi Graf - 1918-1943

Willi Graf was raised in Saarbrücken. As a schoolboy and student, he was a member of the anti-Nazi resistance movement, playing an active role in the White Rose resistance group. He was arrested twice. At the second time, he was executed. Since then, he has become a fine example of civil courage and seven schools have been named after him, including the Willi Graf Gymnasium in Saarbrücken.

  4. What courage during a terrible time in history. Many people believe they would be so brave but I doubt they would be. Willi Graf deserves to be remembered.

  7. I didn't know about the White Rose. I read the wikipedia page and I have to say thanks for the history lesson. I'm glad that people still honor them, they surely deserve it.
