On the 70th Anniversary of the Execution of Sophie Scholl, 22 February 1943 - Sophie Scholl was a German woman executed by the Nazis for distributing anti-Nazi pamphlets. Prison officials, in later describing the scene, emphasized the courage with which she walked to her execution. Her last words were: "How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to offer themselves up individually for a righteous cause? Such a fine, sunny day, and I have to go." by lizzie

At her 1975 trial in Germany, a witness told how she “seized children by their hair and threw them on trucks heading to the gas chambers.” She directly murdered 80 people, abetted the murder of 102 children, and collaborated in the murder of 1,000 people. She was released in 1996 for health reasons. by diann
