    On the 70th Anniversary of the Execution of Sophie Scholl, 22 February 1943 - Sophie Scholl was a German woman executed by the Nazis for distributing anti-Nazi pamphlets. Prison officials, in later describing the scene, emphasized the courage with which she walked to her execution. Her last words were: "How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to offer themselves up individually for a righteous cause?

    German soldiers, date unknown. The reality of War. Many soldiers on both sides were little more than kids. Thrown into uniform and given scant training, they were forced to endure combat and conditions that eventually broke even the hardest of the hard-hearted. They also died in droves. Just because they fought for Germany didn't necessarily mean they were Nazis or held Nazi views. The Concentration Camps were Hell, no doubt, but during WWII, Hell stretched in every direction.
