The end – or is it the beginning?

If you did as suggested and started at January 31, 1933, reading all the way through to October 12, 1943 (or whatever we have posted to date), this is the final post. It’s the “end” of the first chapter in White Rose history.

But in reality, it’s only the beginning.

The beginning of more resistance, as other Germans were inspired by the White Rose friends and took up their cause. The beginning of more discussions (some bad, some good) on the campus of the university in Munich regarding what the White Rose friends had done.

But even more, it’s a beginning for us. Now that we know their story, what will we do with that knowledge?

If this topic is near and dear to you, please join us at our first annual White Rose Conference, July 11 – 14, 2013 at Cal State Channel Islands in Camarillo, California USA. Join us as we continue to think about the impact their mutual efforts had on their world.

  1. Hi friends,
    This is the first I ever knew about the White Rose history and would like to know more of how it started, why the white roses, etc. I looked through your pages but could not find out any of this information. Could you direct me to it or explain how and why it was started? I feel we will need some kind of secret resistance in the days ahead and this info would be invaluable.
    Thank you,
    Patty Hanson

  2. I am unsure if this is the correct place to ask about it, but I noticed that (unlike for the Scholl siblings) the interrogation/processing/execution records regarding Christoph Probst have not been posted here. I would like to inquire whether the documents in question are unavailable to public or have they merely not been translated/published in English yet?

    • Apologies for the delay in responding. Moved cross-country in 2022 and just now catching up.

      It’s a combination of things.

      1) Many of Christoph Probst’s interrogations were not held in Munich, so there’s missing documentation.
      2) Initially, we did not intend to publish CP’s documents, because his family is still living. But we’ve visited with them several times and they have no issue with that, so what has been preseved will be published in English translation soon.
      3) We’re understaffed and simply have not had time to keep uploading our database. It is our goal to do so, and hopefully we’ll eventually get volunteers to help us.

      Appreciate your interest!
