Sophie Scholl’s reasons for the leaflets
The accused Sophia Scholl participated in political discussions as early as the summer of 1942. During these discussions, she and her brother Hans Scholl came to believe that Germany had all but lost the war.
She shared her brother’s view that one must make propaganda against the war by producing leaflets. Of course she does not remember whether the idea for producing these leaflets originated with her or her brother.
