Please join civic, educational, business, government, religious and community leaders as the Foundation For California and the La Habra Library present “The Courage To Remember”, an educational exhibit on the history of the Holocaust. The opening ceremony for this exhibit will be held at the La Habra Library on Tuesday, September 3, 2013 at 4:00pm.
ABOUT THIS EXHIBIT, “THE COURAGE TO REMEMBER”: “The Courage To Remember” is a 42 panel educational exhibit on the Holocaust of 1933-1945. With nearly 200 original photographs, many never seen before by the general public, “The Courage To Remember” offers a powerful, compelling insight into the Holocaust.
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 the 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 is produced by the Simon Wiesenthal Center and brought to you by the Foundation For California and the La Habra Library. It will be displayed at the La Habra Library from September 3-22, 2013 (Monday-Thursday, 10:00AM-8:00PM; Friday & Saturday: 10:00AM-5:00PM; Sunday: 12:00-5:00PM).
