A novel by Giuseppe Assandri Sophie Scholl was born in Germany in 1921 into a family of open and liberal ideas. With the advent of Nazism, like her brothers, she comes into contact with Nazi youth organizations. Gradually, Sophie discovers their oppressive and intolerant face. She starts cultivating the seeds of a nonviolent opposition to the dictatorship, especially after her father has been arrested for insulting the Führer. At the age of sixteen, she meets Fritz, a young army officer, with whom she develops an intense relationship, always suspended between friendship and love. While the war is going on, Sophie starts attending university in Munich. There she finds her brother Hans, who with other students has created a clandestine group called The White Rose: through the distribution of leaflets they incite the German people to rebel against Nazism, in the name of freedom, justice, and brotherhood. Sophie takes part directly in the actions of The White Rose.
