The White Rose Resistance:
What motivated young people to resist an injustice regime?
What could one know about the crimes of the National Socialists and what could be done against them?
What does the White Rose have to say to us today?
On January 25, 2019 - in the immediate vicinity of the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust - students of the LMU Munich will organize a public guided tour on the resistance of the White Rose. From summer 1942, the circle of friends around the medical students Alexander Schmorell and Hans Scholl called on the public with leaflets and wall slogans to oppose National Socialism and end the war. Seven of the members - including university professor Kurt Huber - were sentenced to death and executed by the Nazi judiciary in 1943. Many more of her comrades-in-arms were persecuted.
In a project-oriented interdisciplinary seminar on the history and reception of the White Rose, students of German and History will develop their own approaches to student resistance at the LMU Munich in the winter semester 2018/19. Around the central memorial site, the DenkStätte Weiße Rose in the atrium of the main building, they have designed a memorial tour in which they will present their results.
18:00 to 20:00 o'clock
from 17:30 at the Speerträger (Doryphoros) in the upper floor of the LMU main building
The guided tour is free of charge and open to all interested parties.
