On Tuesday, February 11th at 1:00pm we will be screening Sophie Scholl, The Final Days. This is the true story of Germany's most famous anti-Nazi heroine, Sophie Scholl, the fearless activist of the underground student resistance group, The White Rose. The last six days of Sophie Scholl's life in 1943 Munich are dramatized from her arrest to interrogation and from her trial to sentencing. Unwavering in her convictions and loyalty to her comrades, her cross-examination by the Gestapo quickly escalates into a searing test of wills as Scholl delivers a passionate call to freedom and personal responsibility that is both haunting and timeless. The film is in German with English subtitles and runs 117 minutes. Please RSVP (email@example.com) to let us know to expect you.
