Hans and Sophie Scholl, young German students, were appalled by what was happening around them in 1943. They formed a resistance group called “The White Rose,” and heroically protested the policies and actions of the Nazi regime. Hans, his sister Sophie, and many of the students and teachers who made up the group were eventually arrested and executed.
Donations are made to the Holocaust Memorial Fund commemorating the White Rose Society. The donors will be presented with a White Rose to wear on Yom Hashoah in memory of the members of the White Rose Society. The Holocaust Memorial Fund supports Holocaust education on the Peninsula.
