The White Rose Exhibit at the
Oregon Holocaust Resource Center

In October of 1996, our German class took a field trip to an exhibit on the White Rose that was showing at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. The exhibit was a good way to learn about the student resistance group The White Rose and what life was like in Germany during the time that the Nazis were in power. After we walked through the exhibit of pictures with captions explaining the history of The White Rose and the Nazi era, we attended a performance by Penelope Longfellow, who created a one person act about what it was like to be Sophie Scholl. After the play we went to lunch at the Berlin Inn resturant, a German resturant located in Portland.

Below are a few of the pictures from the exhibit.
