There were a number of groups in germany that were attempting to take down the Nazis. The Edelweiss Pirates began right before the outbreak of World War II which was comprised of teenagers from the ages 14-18. The Swing Kids began spreading the truth from the Allies to German citizens. They began non-violent protests and some went on to join a more political group like the White Rose. Johann George Elser was one of many who tried to assassinate Hitler, however he attempted this alone and in the end was executed. The European Union was a group of anti-fascist Germans who hated Nazism. They were founded in Berlin in 1939 and didn’t want to destroy the government but rather create a a unified, socialist Europe. The White Rose only operated for a short period of time from June 1942 to February 1943. They were a non-violent group made up of students who distributed pamphlets and used graffiti to sway away public opinion against the Nazis. The White Rose became very popular and were betrayed to the Nazis by a janitor at the university and the three founders were executed. This website also talks about the Solf Circle, The Catholic Church, The Rosentrasse Protest, Kreisau Circle and Red Orchestra. All of which are groups who went against the Nazis. This website contains accurate, well-researched information. It could have been slightly more elaborate on each group but the point was to give a brief description of ten groups that resisted against the Nazis. It provides enough detail to understand the basics of each groups actions before doing further research.
