White Rose Foundation


The objective of the White Rose Foundation membership association is to uphold the memory and legacy of the resistance group The White Rose against National Socialism. With that, we aim to contribute to civic courage and individual responsibility and to promote democratic consciousness.

The foundation hosts a permanent exhibition in the ‘DenkStätte Weiße Rose‘ in Munich as well as travelling exhibitions, events and educational historical projects about the White Rose and their resistance against the national socialist dictatorship. It is a special concern of ours to make the White Rose’s legacy meaningful in our day and time.

The White Rose resistance Group

The White Rose is one of the best-known German resistance groups against the national socialist dictatorship. Their thoughts and actions are a symbol of human dignity, freedom, justice, and self-dependent conscientious action.

DenkStätte Weiße Rose – The White Rose exhibition, LMU, Munich

Our permanent exhibition about the history of the White Rose and its resistance in times of Nazi terror and of criminal war. It is complemented by a section about how the White Rose has been remembered since 1943.

Visiting groups are asked to please give notice of their intended visit ahead of time (even when not booking a guided tour) because of the limited space inside the exhibition.
