Travelling exhibition “White Rose”

“Leaflets of the White Rose” is what fellow students Hans Scholl and Alexander Schmorell name their first four leaflets, calling for passive resistance and the immediate termination of the Second World War. The leaflets are self published and distributed in Munich during June and July 1942.  In mid January 1943 a fifth leaflet, “Appeal to all Germans!”, is spread across several German cities. Just one month later Hans and Sophie Scholl are arrested while placing copies of a sixth leaflet in the atrium of the University of Munich. Seven of those involved in the resistance  are executed: Hans and Sophie Scholl, Christoph Probst, Alexander Schmorell, Prof. Kurt Huber, Willi Graf, and Hans Leipelt, others receive long term prison sentences.
