70 years ago today Sophie Scholl was murdered by the state. She was caught distributing a leaflet at Munich University, where she was a student, condemning Hitler and the war. She was a member of the non-violent resistance group, ‘Die weisse Rose’: The White Rose. She was brought to trial on the 22nd of February 1943, convicted of treason, and beheaded that afternoon. She was 21. Her last words were:
"How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to give himself up individually to a righteous cause? Such a fine, sunny day, and I have to go, but what does my death matter, if through us thousands of people are awakened and stirred to action?"
