Remembering in Munich

Terry Swartzberg is a nice Jewish boy from Wisconsin who has found himself loving life in Munich, Germany these last twenty-five years or so.

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

February 16, 2014


Fast approaching the 20th anniversary of the beginnings of our White Rose research (July 1994), sometimes it’s easy to feel a little blue about this work. Days when people who publish fluff bask in adulation for perpetuated legend, or those perplexing times when doors are slammed shut or brick walls erected around primary source documents, […]

Aristotle, Augustine, and Hitler – for Audrey

January 31, 2014


Hans Scholl too officially began his Christmas vacation on December 22, [1942] showing up at his parents’ house without Sophie. Doubtless Hans made some excuse or the other for Sophie’s absence. Apparently neither he nor Sophie told anyone that Sophie was off to visit Otl in Bad Hall. What a happy reunion that was! Otl was […]

Kim’s Dad and the White Rose

September 10, 2013


I have always wondered why I, the granddaughter of Mexican immigrants and child of a farmworker, am so fascinated by resistance to the Nazis during the Third Reich. I am neither German nor Jewish. I am not a member of any targeted groups, and none of my ancestors even had any interaction with Nazi Germany. […]

Big Brother XV and the Holocaust

August 25, 2013


Normally in this space, we address two types of issues: Events or publications that are directly connected with Center for White Rose Studies, or matters pertaining to the Holocaust (resistance, survivors, documentaries). Popular culture rarely rates the slightest mention. But the overt racism, homophobia, misogyny, and ageism that has pervaded this summer’s season of Big […]
