Digital Symposium 2020

We were due to hold a symposium on the White Rose Resistance on 17 and 18 March 2020 at St Edmund Hall, Oxford. Sadly we had to postpone the event. We hope to be able to hold the symposium on a future date, but in the meantime we’re hosting a digital symposium here on our website. Read articles by academics and students on the group and on the experience of translating their letters and diaries. We’ll be adding material over the next few weeks.
