I believe Hitler faced less resistance.

“I believe Hitler faced less resistance.”

Besides what we have learned about resistance from the movie Valkyrie, there was grassroots resistance that has gotten less attention, but had just as good a story to tell. A GREAT movie, (better than Valkkyrie) on this resistance was Sophie Scholl: The Final Days.

Sophie Scholl: The Final Days

Sophie Scholl was arrested and then executed by guillotine by the Third Reich for distributing anti-Nazi leaflets at her college campus. For this she was beheaded along with several of the other brave young God fearing people of the “White Rose”, an underground Nazi resistance movement. This is a dramatization of that event, it is a movie that will not leave you and will have you thinking about it for days after viewing. I highly recommend this film. I found myself drawn into this movie like few other movies will do.

This is brilliant stuff. The tension becomes almost unbearable. The depiction of Freisler (The judge), which might seem over the top, but is quite consistent with accounts and actual film clips of the trial, maybe even understated. He was diabolical, tyrannical and very hot tempered.

After reading many rave reviews from regular people, I ordered this 2005 movie over the Holidays from Netflix. It was sooooo good, I just had to purchas a copy
