The White Rose


An exhibit chronicling The White Rose resistance group in Nazi Germany.

January 5, 2015 – March 20, 2015
University of Oregon
Global Scholars Hall (Eugene campus), 1st floor and mezzanine


Formed by University of Munich students and their professor, The White Rose was a small, non-violent Nazi resistance group in Germany who spoke out against Nazi policies. Between June 1942 and February 1943, the members created and distributed leaflets that called for the active opposition of the German people to Adolf Hitler's regime. Seven members were executed in February 1943 and many others were imprisoned. The group's sixth leaflet, their last, known as the “Manifesto of the Students of Munich,” was later airdropped over Germany in June 1943 by Allied planes.

Lodenjacke Cameo on Project Runway

25 August 2014. Prost! A Lodenjacke (hunters jacket) recently made a cameo on Project Runway Season 13, Episode 5 "The Klum of Doom". Host Heidi Klum compared the color of one of the designers dresses to that of a Lodenjacke...which wasn't a good thing. But hey, a little Bavarian culture made it on to prime time reality TV. Wunderbar!!!
