White Rose Exhibit: Oct. 24th – Nov. 20th, AS Building 3rd floor The exhibit is presented by White Rose Foundation e.V. of Munich, Germany White Rose Exhibit Photos

About the Exhibition The exhibition displays the individuals and activities of the White Rose, a student resistance group against the dictatorship of Nazi Germany. This group actively fought against the oppression of civic liberties, the persecution of Jews and demanded an end to the war. After being uncovered, the core members, six young students and one professor, were executed by the NS terror regime, others were jailed with long term prison sentences. The resistance group produced and distributed a total of six leaflets calling for resistance against the regime. Helmuth von Moltke smuggled the sixth leaflet to Scandinavia and further to the UK in 1943. Millions of copies of these were dropped over Germany by the Royal Airforce until the end of the war.

Objectives Above all, the foundation wants to get in touch with young people and students in order to maintain the legacy of the White Rose. It wants to remind the youth of today of the important fight for human rights as well as the courage of the White Rose members to stand up against an omnipresent and brutal dictatorship. The White Rose Foundation does not only want to ask “What was it like?”, but also “What does it mean today?”. It bases its activities on contact with contemporary witnesses, own research and cooperation with historical research institutions.
