The White Rose Exhibit is free to school classes, university classes, and the general public. All information is in English and German, and special events will be held at each location. For scheduling and special events information, please contact the organizer at a location that is convenient for you.
This exhibition displays the individuals and activities of the White Rose, a student resistance group that opposed the dictatorship of Nazi Germany. This group actively fought against the oppression of civil liberties and the persecution of Jews, and demanded an end to the war. The White Rose produced and distributed a total of six leaflets calling for resistance against the regime. After being discovered, the core members (six young students and one professor) were executed by the Nazi terror regime. Other members were sentenced to lengthy prison terms.
Also note the Wisconsin connection to Nazi-Resistance and the White Rose: Mildred Fish-Harnack. She was from WI, the only American woman, and was executed on Hitler's orders.
