One of the core aims of the White Rose Project is to engage in research on the resistance group. We do this through events and publications.


The White Rose: Reading, Writing, Resistance (2019)

Our first publication was The White Rose: Reading, Writing, Resistance (2019), edited by Alexandra Lloyd and published by the Taylor Institution Library in its new Cultural Memory series. The book includes facsimiles of the White Rose pamphlets and transcriptions of the German alongside a new English translation. While there are many versions of the pamphlets in English, the translations included here are the result of a collaborative process (as is true of the original pamphlets) and were undertaken by undergraduate student members of the very first White Rose Translation Project (2018-2019). The White Rose: Reading, Writing, Resistance can be purchased at the Taylor Institution Library (University of Oxford), or from online booksellers.

New Publication – ‘The White Rose: Reading, Writing, Resistance’


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. Instead, we hosted a digital symposium here on our website. Read articles by academics and students on the group.
