The Center for White Rose Studies periodically publishes an electronic newsletter, updating scholars interested in German resistance in general or White Rose in particular, and persons otherwise interested in the topics of informed dissent in a civilized society. These newsletters appear quarterly and are sent to German, history, and Holocaust education professors across the United States, as well as in the U.K., Canada, and Australia.
We also occasionally issue press releases to the media.
