The White Rose

[EXHIBIT] Monday, May 13-Thursday, Aug. 22

In the summer of 1942, a group of young German college students began an extraordinary campaign of nonviolent resistence to the Nazi regime. They called their effort the White Rose, and over the next eight months this small group, motivated by the murder of Jews and others on the Eastern Front, would produce six leaflets calling for active opposition to the Nazis. Six of the students and their philosophy professor were arrested and executed by their government. Others were sentenced to prison. The exhibit documenting their story is a cooperative effort of the UNLV University Libraries, German Consulate of Los Angeles and UNLV Foreign Language Department. Hours vary; UNLV Lied Library, 4505 S. Maryland Parkway, 895-2277, free
