Food for Thought

On the 70th anniversary of the execution of Sophie Scholl, February 22, 1943 – Sophie Scholl was a young German woman, a kindergarten teacher, who was executed by the Nazis for distributing anti-Nazi pamphlets.

Prison officials, 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.”

    73rd anniversary. Excellent 2005 movie “Sophie Scholl – The Last Days”. More elementary schools in Germany are named after her and her brother than anyone else.
