The Story

Die Weisse Rose is a traveling exhibit displayed at Lehman Library Main Gallery from September 2 - October 2.

The exhibit consists of 47 posters displaying text and images from die Weiße Rose, a student group in Munich, Germany, during the Third Reich that opposed National Socialism. 

They tell the story of this group and its demise after being apprehended by the Gestapo, or secret state police, in 1943.
