EVENT DETAILS

Please join civic, educational, business, political, religious and community leaders as the Foundation For California kicks off its Central Valley tour of “The Courage To Remember” at California State University Fresno.

 

ABOUT THIS EXHIBIT, “THE COURAGE TO REMEMBER”: “The Courage To Remember” is a 42 panel educational exhibit on the Holocaust of 1933-1945.  It is an historical account of the Nazis’ murderous campaign in which 6 million Jews and others (political dissidents, P.O.W.’s, Slavs, Gypsies, homosexuals and the mentally ill) were killed between 1933 and 1945.

 

The crimes of the Nazis during the Holocaust serve as a dark chapter of the 20th century.  Yet, the causes of the Holocaust remain with us today.

 

Man’s flawed nature, racism and complacency of ordinary people in the persecution of others persist.

 

Therefore the need for this exhibit.  Individual citizens must have the courage to remember, educate themselves of this tragedy and commit to prevent such crimes from happening again.

 

This exhibit of the Museum of Tolerance is made possible by an educational grant from SNCF and presented by the Foundation For California. It will be shown at California State University Fresno’s University Student Union Building from Sept. 22-26, 2011.
