The White Rose Project is delighted to be partnering once again with the Oxford German Network for Round 2 of the Oxford German Olympiad!
The White Rose (‘Die Weiße Rose’) was a group of students and a professor in Munich that wrote and distributed leaflets calling on Germans to resist Hitler. 2023 marks the 80th anniversary of the group’s arrest, trial, and execution.
TASK: “The White Rose resistance circle wrote a series of leaflets calling on Germans to resist Nazism. Choose one of the White Rose resistance pamphlets and adapt it into another written form in German (max. 400 words). It could be, for example, a poem, a dialogue or short play, a short story, a podcast script, or a speech.”
Prize: £100 and a copy of Defying Hitler: The White Rose Pamphlets (Bodleian Library Publishing, 2022). The winning entry will also be featured on our website.
Deadline: 12 noon, Thursday 9 March 2023.
Competition open to: Pupils in years 12 and 13 or equivalent (age 16-18).
