Arts + Lit Lab | WE WILL NOT BE SILENT! Sophie Scholl and the White Rose
November 11 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm
In 1942 and ’43, a group of five students and one professor at the University of Munich, clandestinely produced and distributed six leaflets calling for the overthrow of the Nazi regime in Germany. They called themselves The White Rose Group, and knew that if caught they would be executed. It was a risk they were willing to take. This dramatic reading will tell their story and tragic fate. In this time of growing authoritarianism around the world, it is a story that we all need to hear. Join us – free as always.
Maggie Schenk will read the part of White Rose member Sophie Scholl, Daniel Graupner will be the narrator with music from cellist Daniel Plane.
There will be a talk back after the reading.
