Foothill College has scheduled “The Courage to Remember,” a traveling exhibition produced by the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Museum of Tolerance, through March 2 on the lower level of the KCI Gallery, 12345 S. El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills.
After more than 20 years of international acclaim and a celebrated statewide tour, “The Courage to Remember” premieres at Foothill in partnership with the Foundation for California.
The exhibition has attracted more than 2 million visitors at 73 locations since its inception, making it the most widely attended traveling exhibition on Holocaust education and remembrance. “The Courage to Remember” features 200 exclusive photographs that offer rare insight into the Holocaust. The display is divided into four themes: “Nazi Germany, 1933-1938”; “Moving Toward the ‘Final Solution,’ 1939-1941”; “Annihilation in Nazi-Occupied Europe, 1941-1945”; and “Liberation, Building New Lives.”
“We are delighted that Foothill College has invited ‘The Courage to Remember’ to its campus and community,” said Alfred Balitzer, Ph.D., chairman of the Foundation for California. “‘The Courage to Remember’ uses history to empower generations to resist ignorance, fight discrimination and pursue justice for all. In culturally diverse areas like California, this exhibition is not a luxury, it is a necessity.”
Exhibition hours are 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Parking Lots 3 and 5 provide access to the gallery. Parking for those with disabilities is available in Lot 4. Visitors must purchase a parking permit for $3 from dispensers in the lots. Dispensers accept $1 bills and quarters.
Admission is free and open to the public.
