White rose

The White Rose memorial exhibition and tour ‘DenkStätte Weiße Rose’

The ‘DenkStätte’ memorial to the White Rose in the heart of Munich’s Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) is a central place to commemorate the history of the White Rose students’ resistance.

On 18 February 1943, Sophie and Hans Scholl are detained by the LMU’s janitor while distributing the sixth White Rose leaflet in the university’s atrium. Their arrest is the beginning of the end for the White Rose resistance circle.

This guided tour of the exhibition and the atrium informs visitors about the motivations, the objectives and the activities of the White Rose resistance group.

The tour is free of costs and lasts 1 hour and will be arranged in the morning around 10am.
