Speaking Truth to Power: The White Rose Student Anti-Nazi Resistance – And Heroes in the Fight for Human Rights Today

Monday, January 8, 2018

Thursday, January 25, 2018, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM, St. Paul Student Center Theater

Dr. Jud Newborn recounts how Sophie Scholl and her brother Hans - former fanatical Hitler Youth leaders, transformed uniquely to become the greatest heroes of the German anti-Nazi resistance. Relating the White Rose story to today’s most compelling current events and global issues, Dr. Newborn then presents an array of “White Rosers” today - inspiring heroes of all backgrounds, abroad and at home - who risk themselves for freedom and our shared humanity.

In commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day
