Wolfgang Huber interviewed for l'X on Air
Wolfgang Huber, Professor Emeritus at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, is the son of Professor of Philosophy Kurt Huber, mentor of the “White Rose” movement.
The White Rose is the name given to the German non-violent intellectual resistance group which begun in the University of Munich and protested against the Nazi regime during WWII. Wolfgang Huber came at École Polytechnique on September 8, 2015, to discuss more about the peace movement in the context of Hitler's regime.
"It is a great honor for me to speak to students of one of the most important universities of the world, students who will probably change our future. We still need today young people alert to any sort of deteriorating democracy," said Wolfgang Huber. He adds that the exhibition in display at École Polytechnique shows "to the countries who suffered from the atrocities of the German Wehrmacht that there existed another Germany", and hopes that this can "contribute to the strengthening of the Franco-German friendship, which is so important for Europe."
