http://www.zeitgeistfilms.com/film.php?directoryname=so...

The Final Days chronicles the true story of Sophie Scholl and several other young people who spoke out against Hitler. Fantastic movie.

2. Sophie Scholl should be a household name instead of Anne Frank.
I wonder why we don't learn about her in school.
:sarcasm:

14. Sorry, but that's a really ignorant remark
And comes across as blaming the victims.

It wasn't a defeat; it was a genocide.

And yes, the Jews did fight back - heard of the Warsaw Uprising?

15. What?
Anne Frank hid in an attic. That's not fighting back.

Do you get my point now?

17. The reason Anne Frank is taught in schools is to expose children to the Holocaust.

18. Duh.
My point is: how about we give them other examples... examples of people who stood up to the bastards, no matter the consequences?

19. What an utterly insensitive and downright stupid remark.
Demonizing a young, innocent victim of Nazi torture and murder.

There's something wrong with you. Seriously. Get help.

22. Demonizing?

Little hysterical there aren'tcha?


on edit: your suggestion that there's something wrong with me and that I should get help says something about you. Might wanna ponder on that a while.

I'd throw some nasty labels back at ya for good measure, but I'm not like that.

9. I read a book about The White Rose several years ago
Interesting because it told of Sophie's evolution toward a political activism. I don't want to be a spoiler, so I'll say no more.

10. It's a great story but most of the movie was pretty dry I thought.
I was expecting something more. There were some highlights, but all in all the movie was just OK. It's too bad, because it's a powerful story. I wish there were more movies of the struggle against fascism in Germany.

23. "We will not be silent" graphic that prints out on 8X10 paper
You can adapt it to your needs. If you want to do a transfer, be sure to turn the image 180 degrees. You can print (transfer) it out on a Tee shirt. Don't forget to turn 180 degrees so you won't have it backwards. One for a white Tee and one for a black Tee.
