"Righteousness"


On the 70th Anniversary of the Execution of Sophie Scholl, 22 December 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."


Stay Tuned.
