On February 22, 1943, three students from the White Rose, a small underground resistance movement, were executed by guillotine. One of them was a 21-year-old Munich University student named Sophie Scholl, who had courageously fought against Nazi tyranny, not with bullets or bombs but with words, printed in leaflets, that proclaimed a passionate desire to live in a free and democratic society. Her brave and principled stand made her a legend in Germany. Drawing on a wide variety of original documents from German archives, this story also includes her letters and diaries, Gestapo interrogation files, court documents, and exclusive interviews, most notably with Elisabeth Hartnagel, Sophie’s sister and only living family member. This biography provides a shocking yet inspirational story about the remarkable life of this German heroine, a modern-day icon who defied Hitler and who was executed for her beliefs.
