SOPHIE SCHOLL AND THE WHITE ROSE

SOPHIE SCHOLL - STUDENT LIFE IN RESISTANCE

DESCRIPTION

Young Sophie Scholl seemed to be a normal Munich student during World War II. But between her hobbies, she was a member of the "White Rose", a resistance group against the Nazi regime. Together with her brother Hand and their friends, Sophie organized acts of resistance. The White Rose became famous for their leaflets, with thousands distributed in the entire south of Germany. Another one of those acts should seal the fates of the students, when they were caught and arrested on February 18th, 1943, inside Munich University. The tour will guide you through Munich-Schwabing to the following destinations:

  • Munich University
  • English Garden
  • Leopoldstraße

Professional voice actors in the roles of Sophie Scholl and Professor Kurt Huber will guide you to the most important locations of the White Rose, e.g. the apartment at Franz-Joseph-Straße, which became the center of the White Rose. Experience first hand the last action of the Scholl siblings leading to their arrest. Expect an entertaining and informative tour about the most captivating story of Munich University!
