Resistance Figure. He was one of the leaders of the "White Rose," an anti-Nazi resistance movement among German students in Munich. Along with friends Hans and Sophie Scholl and Alexander Schmorell, Probst wrote and distributed leaflets condemning the Nazi regime and calling for sabotage against the war effort. After the Scholls were caught distributing the leaflets in public, they and Probst were interrogated by the Gestapo and tried by the notorious Nazi People's Court. Found guilty, they were executed on Feb. 22, 1943, in Munich's Stadelheim Prison.
