Virtual Conference


In 1943, the 21-year-old student Sophie Scholl was executed for her part in the White Rose, a group that secretly wrote and distributed pamphlets calling on Germans to resist Hitler. In this talk, Dr Alexandra Lloyd (Fellow by Special Election in German, St Edmund Hall) presents Sophie Scholl’s life and legacy, drawing on excerpts from her letters and diaries in a new English translation by undergraduate students at Oxford.
