The Cemetery at Perlach Forest is the final resting place of several victims of the Nazi concentration camps around Munich, Nazi political prisoners as well as the members of the White Rose (Weiße Rose).
As Hitler rose to power in Germany, a group of young students along with Professor Kurt Huber at the University of Munich protested non-violently against Nazi ideology, calling themselves the White Rose group. They were arrested, tortured, tried at the Justizpalast by the Volksgerichtshof, executed at the Stadelheim prison nearby and buried at the Cemetery here in 1943. See their graves here as well as those of 4000 others who lost their lives to Nazi persecution.
