The objective of the White Rose Foundation membership association is to uphold the memory and legacy of the resistance group The White Rose against National Socialism. The foundation hosts a permanent exhibition in the DenkStätte Weiße Rose in Munich as well as travelling exhibitions, events and educational historical projects about the White Rose and their resistance against the national socialist dictatorship. It is a special concern of the Foundation to make the White Rose’s legacy meaningful in our day and time.

While there are many versions of the pamphlets in English, the White Rose Translation Project set out to produce a new translation with two aims: first, that it should be collaborative and second, that it should be undertaken by university students. Fifteen students from ten colleges took part in the 2018-2019 White Rose Translation Project, which resulted in a new publication: The White Rose: Reading, Writing, Resistance (Oxford: Taylor Institution Library, 2019).
