Standing Up for Your Values:  The “White Rose” Student Resistance against Hitler (1942-43)

Tuesday, January 17 - Friday, February 3, 2017
Normal Building Hours
Located in Golding hall

Brandeis University is proud to host The White Rose, an inspiring exhibition depicting the student resistance against Hitler in Munich during 1942-43. The traveling exhibit was created by The White Rose Foundation and is being offered in collaboration with the Consul General of Germany to New England.

Students and faculty of Brandeis University as well as the greater Boston community are invited to experience the exhibition and learn about “Leaflets of the White Rose”, a series of student-created papers calling for passive resistance and the immediate termination of the war, the individuals of the White Rose movement, their paths to resistance, actions and persecution by the Nazi regime.
