|How far would you go to spread the truth?
In 1943, Sophie Scholl and her brother Hans, students in their twenties, secretly wrote and distributed thousands of leaflets to the citizens of Germany. The leaflets told the truth of the disastrous war in the East, of the genocide against the Jews and the lies of the country's corrupt and idiotic leaders.
At the time, Germans felt their patriotic duty was to support the troops fighting for their lives in the killing fields of Stalingrad. The government told the people they were winning, that only the enemy had committed crimes, and that the Jews had moved voluntarily 'to the east'. The truth could be found with a little effort, but few wanted to know.
Sophie and Hans understood patriotic duty differently. That truth and honour cannot be sacrificed.
They were arrested, and given a public show trial. On hearing the verdict of death, Sophie shouted prophetically to the judge: "Soon you will be in my place."
"My Sophie Scholl – The Final Days" is an inspiring film about Sophie's arrest and trial, which will inspire everyone in the 9/11 truth movement.
Its in German with english subtitles, and available on DVD and BitTorrent.
I highly recommend it.
