Commemorating their 70th Anniversary year, Dr. Jud Newborn – acclaimed international lecturer, curator and pioneer in the creation of modern Holocaust museums – presents Speaking Truth to Power: Dr. Jud Newborn Recounts the White Rose Resistance MovementThis dramatic, multimedia program is based on his bestselling book, Sophie Scholl and the White Rose, which tells the full story treated in the Academy Award-nominated German film, “Sophie Scholl: The Last Days.”

Using music, historical photographs 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.  “We will not be silent,” their wartime leaflets declared.  “We are your bad conscience.  The White Rose will not leave you in peace!”  On February 18, 1943, they mounted a gallery high above the University of Munich’s vast atrium and scattered hundreds of leaflets down upon the heads of astonished students.  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 current events, he then presents an array of “White Rosers” today – inspiring heroes of all backgrounds, abroad and at home – who risk themselves for freedom and our shared humanity.

This program is presented as the Annual Lusia & Stephen Hornstein Program in Remembrance of the Holocaust and the Human Spirit at Isaac M. Wise Temple.
