Women who made History | Episode 6 | Sophie Scholl

51m 23s

Sophie Scholl has gone down in history because she took a stand against injustice, virtually ignored by the world at large, and paid the ultimate price for her principles. She is now one of the most popular figures of German resistance against Hitler.. Photographs show her as a 20-year-old girl; knowing that she was interrogated, tried and executed simply for speaking out about the injustices of the Nazi regime has helped make her part of the collective memory of the German nation.
