ON WORLD Holocaust Day, Harlow MP Robert Halfon was invited by BBC Radio 4 to tell listeners why Sophie Scholl was such an inspiration to him.

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 convicted of high treason after having been found distributing anti-war leaflets at the University of Munich (LMU) with her brother, Hans. As a result, she was executed by guillotine. Since the 1970s, Scholl has been extensively commemorated for her anti-Nazi resistance work.

Here is Robert Halfon’s testimony.
