DenkStätte Weiße Rose – White Rose Foundation
The White Rose Foundation was established in 1987 by former convicted members of the White Rose resistance group, their family members and friends. The Foundation wants to uphold the memory of the group’s resistance against the National Socialist dictatorship and to promote civic courage, individual responsibility and democratic consciousness. It also provides stimuli for tolerance and against racism and xenophobia.
Its work centers around operating the White Rose memorial exhibition (DenkStätte Weiße Rose) in Munich, organizing travelling exhibitions in Germany and abroad, conducting educational historical projects with schools and hosting other related events.
The White Rose Foundation is a registered non-profit membership association.
Its office is located on the premises of Ludwig-Maximilians-University, 80539 Munich, Geschwister-Scholl-Platz 1.
Dr. Hildegard Kronawitter, 1. Chairperson (honorary management)
Markus Schmorell, 2. Chairperson
Dr. Werner Rechmann, 3. Chairperson, Treasurer
The Foundation is supported by cities and communities relevant to the life and resistance activities of the White Rose. These “White Rose Cities” are Berlin, Freiburg, Gräfelfing, Hamburg, Munich, Saarbrücken and Ulm.
The most important partner for the Foundation’s educational historical work is the Bavarian Ministry of Education and Culture, Dep. XI.9 Culture of Remembrance. One of the pivotal questions of our educational work is how we can heighten the interest in and awareness of the ideals of the White Rose in young people today. Working together with young people on subjects related to resistance against the Nazi dictatorship is particularly important to the board and employees of the White Rose Foundation. This work centers on successful projects in various parts of Germany and the world.
A historical overview of the White Rose resistance group is provided in the chapter “The White Rose“.
The current dates and locations our travelling exhibit is booked can be found in our exhibition calendar.
