A little bit about “The Courage to Remember” …
“The Courage to Remember” is a historical exhibit of the Holocaust created by the Museum of Tolerance. The Foundation for California is pleased to coordinate a statewide tour of this traveling exhibit over the next year to continue Holocaust education in communities throughout California.
This exhibit is a 42 panel educational exhibit on the Holocaust of 1933-1945. It is a historical account of the Nazis’ 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.
This exhibit of the Museum of Tolerance is made possible by an educational grant from SNCF and presented by the Foundation for California.
