Event Description

“Leaflets of the White Rose” is what fellow students Hans Scholl and Alexander Schmorell named their first four leaflets a call for passive resistance and the immediate termination of the war, self published and distributed during the summer of 1942 in Munich. In mid-January 1943 a fifth leaflet (“Appeal to All Germans!) was spread across several German cities. Just one month later Hans and Sophie Scholl were arrested while placing the sixth leaflet inside the University of Munich. Seven core members were executed, while others received long prison sentences. This exhibition features the members of the White Rose, their path of resistance, their actions and their persecution by the Nazi regime.
