In the summer of 1942, and in February of 1943, a group of students of the Faculty of Medicine in Munich risked their lives handing out flyers signed, "White Rose." They called for resistance to Hitler's regime, and demanded liberty for the German people. Why did these friends risk their lives? What united them? What was at the origin of their courage? The exhibit will document the moving story of this group of students.
