Examples of how Germany’s underground anti-Nazi resistance operated during World War II.

Classroom Ideas

Students should make a list of all the ways in which German people resisted the Nazis. They should consider why people were prepared to take these actions when it was unlikely that any of them would lead to a rebellion and their discovery could lead to arrest and death. Investigate why political opposition failed to unify. Were there reasons dating back to previous problems during the Weimar Period?
