The White Rose and Intolerance Past and Present (October 2021) – Sophie Scholl and the White Rose
October 7 @ 12:00 pm – October 31 @ 12:00 pm
As a part of Time to Act: Germany-Jewish Relations Past and Present, a poster presentation of Sophie Scholl and the White Rose will be available for viewing. “Within the United States, Sophie Magdalena Scholl is not the best-known resistance fighter, but her story is a powerful one. She was a key member of the Weiße Rose (White Rose)—a resistance group run by students at the University of Munich who distributed leaflets and used graffiti to decry Nazi crimes and the political system, while calling for resistance to the Nazi state and the war. On February 22, 1943, she was beheaded for treason at just 21 years old.” (National WWII Museum). This poster presentation tells her story.
The poster presentation is available for viewing at the:
Richard Mauthe Center on October 7th-15th
Cofrin Library on October 16th-31st
Discussion of the poster presentation, lead by Prof. Clif Ganyard and Prof. David Coury, will be held Thursday, October 21st at 4:30 pm in the Cofrin Library. A reception will follow the discussion. Refreshments will be served during the reception.
