100th birthday of Sophie SchollSophie Scholl, born in 1921, joined the “Bund Deutscher Mädel” in the “Hitler Youth” in 1934, where she rose to become a group leader. As a schoolgirl, she was questioned by the Gestapo in 1937 because of her brother Hans’ alliance. Since then she has radically distanced herself from National Socialism. After graduating from high school in 1940, she trained as a kindergarten teacher and, after completing her labor and military service, began studying biology and philosophy in Munich in May 1942. Through her brother Hans, she also met the Catholic journalist Carl Muth, who influenced both as well as the university professor Kurt Huber. In January 1943 Sophie Scholl was involved in the production and distribution of the fifth leaflet of the resistance movement “White Rose”. The sixth leaflet written by Kurt Huber had already been copied by her friends when she returned to Munich from Ulm on February 15, 1943. This leaflet was displayed by the Scholl siblings on February 18, 1943 at Munich University and also thrown in the atrium. Sophie and Hans Scholl were arrested while they were still at the university, sentenced to death on February 22, 1943, and murdered on the same day in the Munich-Stadelheim prison. Today Sophie Scholl is considered one of the most important women in the German resistance against National Socialism.
