WHITE ROSE

Original U.S. 27 inch x 41 inch 1-Sheet Poster for the 1982 Michael Verhoeven Wartime Drama THE WHITE ROSE (DIE WEISSE ROSE) starring Lena Stolze, Wulf Kessler, Oliver Siebert, Ulrich Tukur, Werner Stocker, Martin Benrath and Anja Kruse .

”The White Rose (German: die Weiße Rose) was a non-violent, intellectual resistance group in Nazi Germany, consisting of students from the University of Munich and their philosophy professor. The group became known for an anonymous leaflet and graffiti campaign, lasting from June 1942 until February 1943, that called for active opposition to dictator Adolf Hitler’s regime.

The six most recognized members of the group were arrested by the Gestapo and beheaded in 1943. The text of their sixth leaflet was smuggled by Helmuth James Graf von Moltke out of Germany through Scandinavia to the United Kingdom, and in July 1943 copies of it were dropped over Germany by Allied planes, retitled “The Manifesto of the Students of Munich.””

The poster is in fine folded condition.
