FILM SCREENING: SOPHIE SCHOLL

Sunday at 3:30 pm


Come to Burnett 109 on Sunday at 3:30 pm, for a screening of "Sophie Scholl" (opening event for White Rose Exhibit). The movie chronicles the last days of the White Rose, and more specifically, Germany's most famous anti-Nazi heroine Sophie Scholl. Using historical records of her incarceration, the film re-creates the last six days of Sophie Scholl's life: a journey from arrest to interrogation, trial in a Nazi court and sentence in 1943 Munich. In her cross-examination by the Gestapo, Scholl delivers a passionate call to freedom and personal responsibility that is both haunting and timeless.

 

WHITE ROSE EXHIBIT

Begins this Sunday


 
Formed in 1942 by Ludwigs-Maximilians University students in Munich, the White Rose was a small, non-violent Nazi resistance group in Germany, which spearheaded a nine-month anonymous leaflet and graffiti campaign calling for an active opposition to Adolf Hitler's brutal regime and for an end to the war. After their capture by the Gestapo, seven core members of the group were executed in February 1943 (amongst them the siblings Sophie and Hans Scholl and philosophy professor Kurt Huber) and many more imprisoned. Their "Manifesto of the Students of Munich" leaflet was dropped by Allied planes over Germany in June 1943. The exhibit will be on display at the U. Grant Miller Library from Nov. 16th to Nov. 21st. It will open on Sunday Nov. 16th with a movie screening of Sophie Scholl at 3:30 pm in Burnett 109.
