We Will Not Be Silent


We Will Not Be Silent‎ tells the true story of Sophie Scholl, a German college student who led the only major act of civil disobedience during the Second World War. The play is not directly about the Holocaust, but examines the role ordinary Germans played in the rise of Hitler, and also the moral strength and clarity that led a group of German students to risk their lives for a righteous, but hopeless, cause.
