IN MEMORY OF SOPHIE SCHOLL
On February 22, 1943 Sophie Scholl, 22, was beheaded by the nazi Regime.
Sophie was a student at the University of Munich and member of the White Rose resistance.
She and her brother Hans were arrested for distributing anti nazi flyers at the University. She was convicted of urging students to rise up and overthrow the nazis.
She was also involved in one of the only demonstrations of German women against the nazis. When a high ranking nazi gave an address to the female students at the university Sophie stood up and turned her back on the speaker. Dozens of women followed her lead.
LONG LIVE SOPHIE SCHOLL
