Based on Dr. Newborn's book (*LIBRARY JOURNAL STARRED REVIEW): SOPHIE SCHOLL AND THE WHITE ROSE. Using music, 80 historical images and suspenseful storytelling, Dr. Newborn recounts how Sophie Scholl and her brother Hans - former fanatical Hitler Youth leaders, the latter arrested for a teen same-sex relationship - transformed uniquely to become the greatest heroes of the German anti-Nazi resistance.  It was the only public protest against Nazis ever to be staged. But Dr. Newborn’s program does not remain in the past. Relating the White Rose story to today’s most compelling human rights issues, he presents an array of “White Rosers” today, abroad and at home - who risk themselves for freedom and our shared humanity.
