A U.S. Army nurse carries her gear prior to boarding a plane for transport after being liberated from a Japanese internment camp. She had been a POW for three years. Manila, National Capital Region, Luzon, Philippines. February 1945. Image taken by Carl Mydans.
This is Sophia Scholl. She was born today, May 9, 92 years ago. She was a german student who opposed the Nazis. She was a member of the White Rose. She and other members distributed pamphlets against Hitler. Unfortunately she was caught and executed on February 23, 1943. She was just 21 years old. How she stood up for what she believed in and fought for it even if it meant her death is truly an inspiration.
