Holocaust exhibition

The Simon Wiesenthal Center’s “The Courage to Remember: The Holocaust 1933-1945” traveling exhibition comes to the Woodward Park Regional Library, July 13-Aug. 13. The exhibit features more than 200 exclusive photographs that cannot be seen anywhere else in the world.

Four distinct themes offer insight into the Holocaust: Nazi Germany, 1933-1938; Moving Toward the “Final Solution,” 1939-1941; Annihilation in Nazi-occupied Europe, 1941-1945; and Liberation, Building New Lives.

“Two decades after we first designed this exhibit, its lesson is still vital to peace at home and abroad,” says Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. “Its timeless messages reflect the words of Simon Wiesenthal: ‘Hope lives when people remember.’ ”

The exhibit strives to combat the dangerous impacts of intolerance and hatred and empower people to resist ignorance and fight discrimination.
