  • A museum set up in memory of the German students who were executed because they were considered to have spread Nazi propaganda, which was forbidden. The staircase where the so conspicuously allowed their pamphlets singla down becomes a place for reflection and contemplation, especially after having visited the Weisse Rose Museum and perusing the very personal stories about the students and the professor who was executed by the Nazis. Among other things, you can see the final greetings written by Sophie Scholl to his family, from the cell, as well as read excerpts from the texts they spread, as part of its work to end World War II. The Museum is quite big, with fresh, modern lay-out. There is the possibility that at any hour to read all the details and take note of the atrocities this student group were exposed to, only because they were in opposition to the regime. It's sort of incomprehensible when as I am a teacher of Swedish youth in the age 16-19 to imagine that they would be executed on the basis of political opinion. It will be the meeting between the historical event and our present as the absurdity of what took place is mostly transparent. A museum you absolutely should not miss. A strong experience, and a memory that inevitably leads to reflection.

  • White Rose Monument-unusual monument German oppoziconeram, fought with the Nazis in World War II. The monument is nothing like leaflets, strewn on the pavement near the entrance to the University of Munich. The original leaflets have been found in Great Britain, members of the opposition naturally were executed.
