Sophie Scholl – A Young Christian Faithful unto Death


Still clearing materials off an old blog and here’s a powerful movie I watched several years ago.

Sophie Scholl – The Final Days is a remarkable film about a courageous young Christian in Hitler’s Germany. She actively and publicly opposed the Nazi war machine. In 1943, she, along with two other members of the White Rose resistance group, were arrested by the Gestapo, tried, and beheaded. Sophie was 21.

This movie (in German with English subtitles) is a testimony to Christian faith, humble prayer, physical and moral courage, and family devotion.

The film’s director is an atheist. Nevertheless, it is one of the finest Christian films I’ve seen, a tribute to the work of movie makers who are faithful to a compelling story and tell it well.

The Battle of Stalingrad is mentioned several times in the movie, and it would be helpful to refresh your memory about this pivotal battle before viewing.
