Review of the 2005 German film Sophie Scholl: The Final Days (Die letzten Tage)
"Sophie and her brother, Hans, were leading members of a nonviolent resistance group called the White Rose. ... The White Rose soon became infamous for a leaflet campaign that called for the removal of Hitler from power and an end to the insanity of World War II. The group subsequently became famous as martyrs to freedom and as proof that tyranny cannot destroy man's passion for justice."
