Davenport- The reader’s theater play “The White Rose: A True Story of Freedom in Nazi Germany” by Josephine Cripps will be performed on Saturday February 11th at 1:30pm with a second performance at 3:00pm. The play is directed by Nathan Porteshawver and has a cast of local actors who tell the tale of the White Rose, a resistance group consisting of many young university students that resisted Hitler and paid for it with their lives.

The performance will be held at the German American Heritage Center at 712 West 2nd St. Davenport, IA, in conjunction with the White Rose exhibit running through the 24th of February. Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, and $3 for children ages 5-17. Free for members and children under age 5. Refreshments will follow the 3:00 performance. Support for the play is provided by the Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities, the Rock Island Community Foundation, the Doris and Victor Day Foundation, and the Rauch Family Foundation II and the Washington State Holocaust Education Resource Center.
