As acts of intolerance, Anti-Semitism and bullying continue to afflict our neighborhoods and society, many are left wondering, how can we best combat these dangerous trends of hatred?
The Courage to Remember: The Holocaust 1933-1945 traveling exhibit strives to address this issue at its core, empowering people to educate themselves, learn from history and speak out against injustice as it comes to Ocean View High School from December 9-19, 2019.
A special ribbon cutting ceremony for the exhibit will be held on Thursday, December 12, 2019, 10:15AM at:
Ocean View High School
17071 Gothard Street
Huntington Beach, CA 92647
The exhibit will be open to the public for viewing from 11:00AM-2:00PM on Saturday, December 14.
“Hate has no place in our schools or broader society today. When groups and communities are targeted by racism and intolerance, all of us are at risk,” Ocean View High School Principal Dr. Courtney Robinson said. The Courage To Remember Holocaust exhibit helps today’s students learn the important lessons from the 20th century’s greatest crime.”
“Two decades after we first designed this exhibit, its lesson is still vital to peace at home and abroad,” added 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 Courage to Remember: The Holocaust 1933-1945 traveling exhibit, produced by the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Museum of Tolerance, presented by the Foundation for California and made possible by a grant from SNCF, has displayed in over 16 countries over the past 20 years, in addition to a successful tour throughout California and the Southeast. More than two million people have seen the exhibit in California alone.
The exhibit features more than 200 exclusive photographs. It offers a compelling insight into the Holocaust through four distinct themes: Nazi Germany, 1933-1938; Moving Toward the “Final Solution,” 1939-1941; Annihilation in Nazi-occupied Europe, 1941-1945; and Liberation, Building New Lives.
“‘The Courage To Remember’ empowers young and old to learn from history, confront bigotry and fight for justice. This exhibit is not a luxury, it is a necessity in all communities,” said Dr. Alfred Balitzer, Chairman of the Foundation For California. “We are proud to be able to bring this exhibit to so many locations free of charge as a part of our outreach and educational efforts to help improve communities across the globe.”
