Some critics have seen a sort of reincarnation of Sophocles' Antigone in the historical figure of Sophia Magdalena Scholl, the German student, active in the non-violent group called “The White Rose”, which offered resistance to the Nazi regime. The correspondences are particularly evident in the screenplay for the film Sophie Scholl-Die letzten Tage by Marc Rothemund, as, for example, in the long verbal agon between Sophie and the Kriminalobersekretär Robert Mohr, focusing on the contrast between conscience (and piety) and State laws; the strong bond of philia between Sophie and her brother; in the character of Else Gebel, who adopted the compromise solution - passive obedience to the regime - preferred by Ismene in the Sophoclean prologue; in Sophie's emotion gaining the upper hand (reminiscent of Antigone's bemoaning) before she’s led to her death.

Abstract

Some critics have seen a sort of reincarnation of Sophocles' Antigone in the historical figure of Sophia Magdalena Scholl, the German student, active in the non-violent group called “The White Rose”, which offered resistance to the Nazi regime. The correspondences are particularly evident in the screenplay for the film Sophie Scholl-Die letzten Tage by Marc Rothemund, as, for example, in the long verbal agon between Sophie and the Kriminalobersekretär Robert Mohr, focusing on the contrast between conscience (and piety) and State laws; the strong bond of philia between Sophie and her brother; in the character of Else Gebel, who adopted the compromise solution - passive obedience to the regime - preferred by Ismene in the Sophoclean prologue; in Sophie's emotion gaining the upper hand (reminiscent of Antigone's bemoaning) before she’s led to her death.
