Sophie Scholl photo

„The Sun still shines.“

—  Sophie Scholl White Rose member 1921 - 1943

Die Sonne scheint noch.
These were her last words as depicted in the film, Sophie Scholl - The Final Days (2005) http://www.sophieschollmovie.com/, which was heavily based on Gestapo documents that were in East German archives and not released until 1990. Her last words have also been reported as "God, you are my refuge into eternity" or sometimes "Your heads will fall as well" but there is dispute over whether Sophie or her brother Hans had said this. Hans' last words have been reported as having been Es lebe die Freiheit! ["Long Live Freedom!"]
