Scholl was a member of the non-violent White Rose resistance movement in Nazi Germany. She was arrested on 18 February, 1943, while distributing leaflets at the University of Munich. Four days later Sophie, her brother Hans and their friend Christoph Probst are guillotined in the convict prison Munich-Stadelheim. This low key drama, based almost entirely on transcripts from Scholl's interrogations and trial, is a powerful, unsentimental and simple investigation into the potency of ideals and the cowardice of faltering powerbases. Well worth seeking out.
