Sophie Scholl and the White Rose

I am in Munich now. My friend Robert took me to see is the university building where Sophie Scholl and her brother were famously arrested by the Nazis for distributing anti-Nazi material. Most Americans don’t know this story, but it’s very well-known in Germany. She was a student at the university and a member of the German resistance group, the White Rose. Sophie Scholl’s amazing story of resistance is now reaching the rest of the world through the film Sophie Scholl – The Final Days, which I was blown away by when I saw it 2 years ago. We went into the university building at Ludwig Maximilian Universitat, where the film was shot and where the real Sophie Scholl was arrested
