White Rose Tribute Event
Thursday, Apr 27 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The White Rose Award reminds us of the actions of a group of courageous students in Germany during WWII. Calling for non-violent resistance against Hitler and the Nazis, the group consisted of five students in their early twenties led by Hans and Sophie Scholl. They worked day and night to create flyers criticizing Germans who did nothing to combat the tyranny of the Third Reich. The individuals honored with this award by the Holocaust Center are active and vocal members of our community. Like The White Rose, it is their belief that only through participation can we build a better home for all Central Floridians. The values of inclusiveness and respect are central to their efforts.
