Pub. Date:
Sophie Scholl was one of the members of an underground German protest movement against Hitler rule, based at Munich University, during World War II. Drawing on a fascinating variety of sources, including original documents, Frank McDonough tells the dramatic, absorbing, and inspirational story of her brave struggle against the Nazi regime and examines her legacy of heroism in Germany. This important new biography shows that not all Germans blindly followed Hitler’s regime and her refusal to be silent in the face of injustice is a story that deserves to be remembered and honored.
