Students Hans and Sophie Scholl were members of the 'Weisse Rose' (White Rose), a group that fought against war and state censorship in Nazi Germany. They were seen distributing leaflets in the university on 18 February 1943, condemned to death by a Nazi court and executed several days later. The square opposite is named after their tutor, philosophy professor Kurt Huber, who met the same fate. A monument to the Weisse Rose movement stands in the courtyard, behind which there is a permanent exhibition. Copies of the leaflets, etched in bronze, can be seen at the entrance to the university.
