Oxford Playscripts: The White Rose and the Swastika Paperback

Part of the Oxford playscripts series



An engaging classroom playscript. Based on the true story of a brother and sister and how their initial enthusiasm for Hitler and the Nazi regime turned to brave resistance.

In Munich, Hans, Sophie and their friends form "The White Rose", producing leaflets which fiercely attack Hitler's Government.

If the Gestapo find out who is responsible, they will undoubtedly be killed.

As the leaflets appear far and wide, dissent begins to spread among students.

The White Rose work tirelessly, determined to oppose Hitler at all costs - but where will it end? New, innovative activities specifically tailored to support the KS3 Framework for Teaching English and help students to fulfil the Framework objectives.

Activities include work on Speaking and Listening, close text analysis, and the structure of playscripts, and act as a springboard for personal writing.
