Plot hole: In the scene in Hess's office, he agrees to save Sophie's son and remove him from the concentration camp. He also tells Sophie that he'll bring her son to see her the next day. In the very next scene, Sophie attempts to steal Hess's daughter's radio which would completely jeopardize the saving of her son if she was caught. It is unlikely that she would jeopardize the wonderful situation she arranged for her son, by stealing a radio. Later, Hess does not save her son, but Sophie didn't know this would happen, so she would not have attempted to steal the radio at that time.
Stingo: I was twenty two, and a virgin, and was clasping in my arms at last the goddess of my unending fantasies. My lust was inexhaustible. Sophie's lust was both a plunge into carnal oblivion, and a flight from memory and grief. More than that, I now see it was a frantic attempt to beat back death.
