The White Rose Project is a research and outreach initiative at the University of Oxford. It aims to bring the story of the White Rose resistance group, ‘Die Weiße Rose’, to an English-speaking audience. The project was launched on 12 October 2018, the 75th anniversary of White Rose member Willi Graf’s execution. Although the White Rose is a household name in Germany, it is relatively little known elsewhere. It is an important story in its own right and forms part of a larger discourse about resistance writing and how culture can inform political action.
