I’m reposting this in remembrance of Sophie Scholl, a student activist protesting Hitler’s Nazi regime, who was executed on this day 76 years ago.
Sophie Scholl was a young political activist who led the White Rose resistance group against Hitler and Naziism in WWII Germany. She and her brother Hans were found distributing anti-Hitler leaflets at at the University of Munich, and were charged with High Treason. She and her brother were both executed by guillotine on February 22, 1943. She was just 21 years old. Her sacrifice and inspirational last words have special meaning for us now.

Also this one if you understand German:
(It says it has English subtitles, but it doesn’t. You can try setting up auto-translate for the German subtitles. 😛 Unfortunately, it’s the only version of The White Rose I’ve been able to find online.)
