Event Description: The Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh is proud to partner with Prime Stage Theatre to offer this virtual play event. Classrooms will receive special ticket rates to stream this original production of The White Rose.
In the summer of 1942, leaflets calling for resistance against the Nazi regime began appearing around the city of Munich, Germany. They were found in the mail and left on trains and buses, in phone booths and theater lobbies, and in and around the university. Soon they began appearing in other cities around the country. It was some of the very first overt resistance against the Nazi regime, acts which, at a time of war, were considered high treason.
The group responsible for these leaflets called itself The White Rose. Sophie Scholl, her brother Hans, and their friends Christoph Probst, Alexander Schmorell, Willie Graf – college students – and Professor Kurt Huber were the driving forces behind The White Rose. This group, synonymous with resistance against nazism, is the subject of this remarkable play by James DeVita.
