Based on a true story, With You There Is Light reveals the romantic relationship between two extraordinary people caught on opposite sides of war. Sophie Scholl (1921-1943) and Fritz Hartnagel (1917-2001) met as the Nazis took over Germany.  Sophie grew up in the girls’ Hitler Youth as Fritz graduated as a pilot from the Potsdam Military Academy. Not a member of the Nazi Party, but sworn to allegiance through the new army oath, Officer Hartnagel fights in the war. Sophie begins a religious journey that will influence and inform her growing desire to turn against the Third Reich.

Excerpts of Fritz Hartnagel’s letters are translated by the author and used with permission from S. Fischer Verlag, GmbH. 2005. Frankfurt, Germany. Damit wir uns nicht verlieren. Briefwechsel, 1937-1943. Herausgegeben von Thomas
