Groups of Germans who resisted the Nazis

This article describes 10 groups of German heroes that stood up to and resisted the Nazis. These groups were collectively known as “Widerstand”. The attached photo shows a group of Edelweiss pirates being publicly hanged for going against the Nazis. I guess it was more dangerous for them to go against the Nazis and stand up for their own beliefs, and they were extremely brave for doing so. It probably would have been safer and easier for them to follow the crowd, yet instead they did what they felt was right and some died as a consequence.
