Firstly, I would like to congratulate our winner of last week's FRIDAY FOTO question regarding the identification of the people in the photograph:
Siew Mei Chua
The people in the photo were:
SOPHIA MAGDALENA "SOPHIE" SCHOLL
HANS SCHOLL (brother)
They were known as "Die Weiße Rose" "The White Rose" a non-violent intellectual resistance force in Germany who stood up against the Nazi party and everything which it stood (stands) for.
Our foto this week is not actually a foto. It is a video. A video of their story taken from the movie "SOPHIE SCHOLL: The Final Days" a movie which I saw two weeks ago. Please take the next fourteen minutes to see this. This is the story of The White Rose:
March 29th, 2013
OPPOSITION TO THE NAZIS:
(The very end of this video is only for those with a slightly strong stomach.)
A week from this Sunday is Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Rememberence Day). It's all about standing up against what is wrong and always doing the right thing .... even if it means risking your own life
Something to think about over the weekend..
