i know about the first three but not the last two. What should I know about Rosenstrasse and Cole Wehrle?
Wehrle is very well known in board games, mostly for war games and area control games. His most common design motifs include wildly asymmetrical factions, closed economies and lately sort of mixed "campaign" and legacy style games, that inherit board position/setup from earlier games. His most well known design is probably Root, with other notables including Oath and Pax Pamir.

I think I'm underselling him here, to be honest. Root is insanely popular; on the back of it, Cole Wehrle is likely among the top 5 designers a random hobbyist boardgamer can name and has opinions about.
