The Pamphlets in English

The White Rose used the written word to call the German people to resist Nazism and to contribute to an end to the Second World War. They produced Flugblätter — leaflets or pamphletsto spread their ideas. In total six leaflets were printed and distributed by the White Rose.

While there are many versions of the pamphlets in English, the translations included below are the result of a collaborative process (as is true of the original pamphlets) and were undertaken by undergraduate students at the University of Oxford as part of The White Rose Project.
