The White Rose: Reading, Writing, Resistance

2018 marks the 75th anniversary of one of the most remarkable instances in the history of German Resistance: the White Rose group trials. To commemorate this event, there will be an exhibition in the Taylor Institution, entitled The White Rose: Reading, Writing, Resistance. The exhibition will run from October 12th to 31st in the Voltaire Room of the Taylorian. It will present information on the members of the White Rose and their resistance activities, as well as examples of literature which influenced them to oppose Nazism.

The Translation Project

Together with the Taylor Institution, we are commissioning a new translation of the White Rose leaflets. This project is open to all students of German about to begin the second or fourth year in Michaelmas 2018. Applications will also be considered from students who are not studying German, but who are confident translating between German and English.
