Change of Pace

Watched "Sophie Scholl" this week, and was moved at the courage of German students struggling to do good, even during the death throes of the Nazi juggernaut. The film examines Sophie as part of the German-resistance movement, White Rose.

I was intrigued in no small measure due to my now nearly year-long study of the life and times of Manfred, a German youth of 13 who lived through the Fall of Berlin. And rediscovered his Diary full of notes, only last year! I'm writing a Treatment and Screenplay based on his experiences, transcribed by his own now nearly 80-year-old hand!

I look forward very much to hearing about Manfred’s stories. I have always been fascinated about that period in our worlds history. Are you ready for the pressure of writing a screen play about someone who has gone through such an ordeal? A lot is riding on not making it corny, but I am sure you already know that. Good Luck and I can’t wait to see, hear, read all about it!
