Alexandra Lehmann Author Talk: “With You There is Light” (Rescheduled)
Tuesday, December 5th at 7:00 in the Meeting Room. As a founding member of the White Rose student resistance in Munich during World War II, Sophie Scholl helped write, produce and distribute thousands of anti-Nazi leaflets all over Southern Germany and Austria. Sophie’s boyfriend, Captain Fritz Hartnagel, served on the Western and Eastern fronts. Fritz witnessed SS and army atrocities and wrote Scholl about them. This information propelled Sophie deeper into political activism against their country’s dictator. Their relationship demonstrates the moral complexity of living in a totalitarian society, and is ultimately, a love story.
