Michaelmas Week 2
Sophie Scholl has gone down in history as one of the world's greatest heroines. Her bravery in the name of freedom, and the face of terror, will never cease to inspire people all over the world. Now the first stage adaptation of the Academy Award-nominated, German film brings her powerful story to Cambridge. As a member of the passive resistance group, The White Rose, Sophie is determined to rouse the German people into action against the Nazi regime. After being caught distributing so-called 'seditious' leaflets, she must endure a gruelling interrogation process and a brutal trial. But even the most tragic fate cannot sway her unstoppable quest for justice. This heart-rending tale brings to life a passionate desire to live in a free and democratic society. This is the story of Sophie Scholl, the woman who defied Hitler.
