Alexander Schmorell was a member of the "White Rose," an anti-Nazi resistance movement among German students in Munich. Along with fellow students Hans and Sophie Scholl and Christoph Probst (q.v.), Schmorell 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 other White Rose members were interrogated by the Gestapo and tried by the notorious Nazi People's Court. Found guilty, Schmorell was executed on July 13, 1943, in Munich's Stadelheim Prison.
