Sophie Scholl: Gruppenführerin

The accused Sophia Scholl was initially employed as a kindergarten teacher. Since the summer of 1942, she has been studying Natural Science and Philosophy at the University of Munich. She has belonged to the League of German Girls since 1941 [sic], with final rank of Gruppenführerin [Group Leader].


Note 1: Gruppenführerin is the same rank as Fähnleinführer, which Hans Scholl held. Most biographies of Sophie Scholl ignore the high rank she achieved with BDM or Jungmädel.
