Sophie Scholl Sophie Scholl was a member of an anti-Nazi resistance movement in Germany until, at the age of 21, she was arrested and executed. As a student before the war broke out, she is often pictured smiling and having fun, but suffering and evil revealed her to be courageous in the face of certain death and quietly heroic in her defense of goodness. There are two movies about Sophie, " White Rose " and " Sophie Scholl: The Final Days, " both of which depict the tense horror that closed in and her bravery in the midst of the madness of the Nazi interrogators. We too, might seem ordinary and quiet, but don't underestimate the hidden strength hidden within just waiting to be revealed.
