“ ...out of love for coming generations we must make an example after the conclusion of the war, so that no one will ever again feel the slightest urge to to try out anything similar"Leaflet IV
The White Rose
“Leaflets of the White Rose” is what fellow students Hans Scholl and Alexander Schmorell name their first four papers, 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 the fifth leaflet Appeal to all Germans! is being spread across several German cities. Just one month later Hans and Sophie Scholl are arrested while placing the sixth leaflet inside the University of Munich. Seven core members (Willi Graf, Prof. Kurt Huber, Hans Leipelt, Christoph Probst, Alexander Schmorell, Hans and Sophie Scholl) are executed, over 20 others receive long term prison sentences.
You can find our permanent exhibition picturing the individuals of the White Rose, their path to resistance, actions and persecution by the Nazi Regime at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich (Geschwister-Scholl-Platz 1)
