Two young girls – a German and a French – are confronted with the Nazi dictatorship.

Sophie Scholl is a secret activist in Munich within the “White Rose” movement founded by her brother and one of her student friends. In Picardy, the young Frenchwoman, daughter of a railway worker who takes part in the sabotage organized against the occupier, hides a Jewish friend.

We are in 1943. Sophie is about to take a train to distribute her political leaflets in Stuttgart. Very far from home, to the East, the other young girl comes out of a train. She now has a number on her arm.

"Resistance(s), A Theatrical UFO"
We had the rare opportunity to attend on Wednesday evening, in Vailly-sur-Aisne, the performance of a theatrical UFO.
In the beginning, after driving in the darkness of the night, we clung, to reassure ourselves, to the scenic device, to the stage-room distinction (very slightly marked, it is true), to the costumes of about era :
“I'm in a theatre, I'm watching a performance of a 'play'. »
The effect of this reassuring thought did not last long. Very quickly, we were caught in the whirlwind that carried away the two frail heroines. Physically frail, of course, because for the character we rarely saw, in the theater or elsewhere, so determined. The name of Antigone comes naturally to hatch under my fingers of the French teacher. But Antigone is a mineral woman, carved in the stone of Greek amphitheatres. Sophie and Doucette are women of flesh and blood, bones, skin, nerves, cartilage… like us.
The Theatrical Incarnation is now fully realized. We are no longer aware of watching and listening to actresses: it is in the contemplation of a religious ceremony that we receive the Word of these torture victims. The lady sitting next to me confirms this, who hasn't stopped sniffling for almost an hour. Usually I can't stand the sniffles. That evening, tears seemed to me the only decent response to the tragedy in which we were a part.
Yes, I thought of a religious ceremony while watching the scene in the middle of which a huge Star of David had just materialized. But let us be clear, if there is a religion, it is a religion whose divinity is Humanity, free and radiant or captive and tortured. His angels and saints are also human beings, as are his demons and reprobates.
Wednesday evening's performance therefore had something to do with the Mysteries of the Middle Ages, revealing to us the modest heroism of these Resistance fighters, these beings so young and so tender, who have become giants through excess of humanity.

Anne Lambert, French teacher
