DenkStätte Weisse Rose


This memorial exhibit to the Weisse Rose (White Rose; a nonviolent resistance group led by Munich University students Hans and Sophie Scholl to oppose the Nazis) is within the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität. It's a moving story, and one of Munich's most heroic, told in photographs and exhibits from the period.
