In the film, which is riveting, nearly everyone uses a fountain pen. They always appear to be black, not very large, and to my eyes unrecognizable. The attention to detail is exquisite. Interestingly, all the pens have "nib creep," and appear to be using either black or a blue black ink.

I find this a serious flaw for the Props Department. So much so that I thought, for an instant, to send them a note about it.
Sophie Scholl's life story also resonates today. She is now considered a heroine in Germany, has several stamps with her image (and one with both she and her brother), has a bust prominently displayed and I believe several streets (strasse) named after her, or at least with the Scholl name.
What will we remember about our immediate historical events? And most importantly will we ever look back and say, "that was a disaster, let's not repeat it." And then, "not repeat it."
