In Part Two, Tom Herring and Dr Alexandra Lloyd dive deeper into the resistance writings of the White Rose, and find out what happened to Sophie and Hans Scholl following their arrest by the Gestapo.
“Every word is scrutinised before it’s even spoken, in case there is even a hint of ambiguity about it. Our trust in other people has to give way to mistrust and caution.” - Sophie Scholl (1942).
This episode features choral music by Max Reger, Rudolf Mauersberger, Peter Cornelius and Cecilia McDowall.
