The White Rose consisted of five students, all in their early twenties, at Munich University. Hans Scholl and his sister Sophie led the rest of the group, including Christoph Probst, Alexander Schmorell and Willi Graf. They were joined by a professor, Kurt Huber, who drafted the final two leaflets. All six members of this group were arrested, tried, convicted, and executed by beheading.
The group of Munich students prepared and distributed six leaflets between June 1942 to February 1943. A seventh leaflet was found in possession of the students at the time of their arrest by the Gestapo.
