-->'''Investigator Mohr:''' For the record, I ask you, "Have you, after our conversations, come to the conclusion that your actions together with your brother is to be regarded in the current situation of war as a crime against society and in particular, against our hard fighting troops in the East, and must be harshly condemned?"\\
'''Sophie:''' No, not in my opinion.\\
'''Investigator Mohr:''' You wouldn't betray your brother by admitting your mistake.\\
'''Sophie:''' But I'd betray the idea. I'd do the exact same thing again, because it is not I, but you who has the wrong worldview. I am still of the opinion that I did my best for my people. I don't regret it, and I will accept the consequences.

* [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Ordinary University Student]]: One of the remarkable characteristics of the White Rose is just how ''unremarkable'' all of its members were.
