Cost: Free
 
Nazi resistance fighter Sophie Scholl (9 May 1921 – 22 February 1943) was a member of the group The White Rose. She, her brother Hans, and other members of the group were executed on February 22nd, 1943, for treason after publishing multiple leaflets criticizing the Nazi regime at the University of Munich. She was 21 years old at the time of her death.
 
Following a year of civic unrest and resistance in the United States, the Goethe-Zentrum wants to ask the communities in Atlanta and the Southeast what Scholl’s legacy might mean for protest and democracy in the 21st century. How do her non-violent actions, her courage to fight unlawful laws, and her words of hope and despair resonate with former and contemporary resistance movements in Atlanta and beyond?

Exhibitions

  • Seeking Justice : The Leo Frank Case Revisited

    Even after 100 years the events surrounding the murder of Mary Phagan and the trial and lynching of Leo Frank remain both disturbing and morbidly fascinating. Seeking Justice allows visitors to look at the momentous and tragic events of the years 1913-1915 through the lens of the societal and political tensions that existed in Atlanta at that time. The full exhibition provides an immersive experience for visitors, while an artifact only display for smaller spaces conveys this story's significance in a more condensed manner.

  • Absence of Humanity : The Holocaust Years, 1933-1945

    This permanent exhibition presents the history of the Holocaust through artifacts and stories of Atlanta area Holocaust Survivors.
