Sophie Scholl: The Final Days- March 18
6:30 pm The White Theatre at the Jewish Community Campus
In 1943, as Hitler continues to wage war across Europe, a group of college students mount an underground resistance movement in Munich. They call themselves the White Rose. One of its few female members, Sophie Scholl, is captured during a dangerous mission to distribute pamphlets on campus with her brother Hans. Unwavering in her convictions and loyalty to the White Rose, 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.
