Sophia Magdalena Scholl (9 May 1921 – 22 February 1943) was a German student and anti-Nazi political activist, active within the White Rose non violent resistance group in Nazi Germany.
She was found distributing anti-war leaflets at the University of Munich with her brother, Hans and they were both executed by guillotine for high treason.
