:: "Die Sonne scheint noch." ::

From the interview with director Marc Rothemumd:

"I admire her courage.
She turned down the 'golden bridge' offered to her
By the interrogation officer Robert Mohr:
Thus practically signing her own death sentence.
I find this approach to death quite startling:
How does such a life-affirming, positive-minded
Young woman like Sophie Scholl come to terms with
The fact that her life is being taken away from her?
How does she find a meaning in her death?
And, of course, as an atheist I ask myself:
Is it easier to face death as a believer?
