One of the few surviving anti-Nazi leaflets from Munich University in World War II is to be presented by Britain to the British Holocaust Center this week.When will they arrive at Yad Vashem too?
The “White Rose Movement” in Germany secretly printed thousands of leaflets describing the horrors of the Holocaust while most of the world hid or ignored the genocide against the Jews.
The six core members of the White Rose Movement included Sophie and Hans Scholl, whom the Nazis executed in 1943 and who now are regarded as heroes for their support of democracy and freedom. Allied aircraft forces dropped the leaflets in 1943.
Collector William Kaczynski is donating one of the leaflets to the Holocaust Center in Nottinghamshire, Britain, the London Daily Mail reported.
The Center is dedicated to Holocaust education and remembrance in Britain, and it described itself as having been “born of one non-Jewish family’s unique response to the destruction of Europe’s Jews.”
The Center houses two permanent exhibitions on the Holocaust, hosts regular talks by Holocaust survivors and is visited by more than 20,000 students each year. Its memorial gardens include more than 1,000 fragrant white roses dedicated by survivors and others in memory of loved ones murdered in the Holocaust.
