“The White Rose resistance circle wrote a series of leaflets calling on Germans to resist Nazism. Many of the leaflets include quotations, from plays, philosophy, and even a line from a song. Write a blog post in German (max. 350 words) about a quotation that inspires you. How might that quotation inspire others to make the world a better place?”
