White Rose Project Launch

On Friday 12 October around fifty students, academics, teachers, and members of the public gathered at the Taylor Institution Library for the launch of the White Rose Project. Dr Alex Lloyd (University of Oxford) began by introducing the project and then guests had the opportunity to view the exhibition ‘The White Rose: Reading, Writing, Resistance’ in the Voltaire Room. This was followed by refreshments.

In her speech, Alex expressed the hope that the project might contribute to keeping alive the memory of the White Rose and spreading its story beyond Germany. The speech can be viewed in full here:
