As a result, they were both executed by guillotine. She was 21.Since the 1970s, Scholl has been extensively commemorated for her anti-Nazi resistance.
"How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to give himself up individually to a righteous cause. Such a fine, sunny day, and I have to go, but what does my death matter, if through us, thousands of people are awakened and stirred to action?"
-Sophie Scholl, just before her execution
