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.
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.
