Federation partners with Historical Society for unique glimpse into Holocaust
Right now, you can ensure today's generation remembers the Holocaust, takes action and prevents a similar catastrophe from ever happening again.
Through Federation's OneWorld initiative, Federation is partnering with the Historical Society of Palm Beach County to present one of the most renowned Holocaust photography exhibits in the world.
The Courage to Remember has been seen by more than 2 million people, making it the world's most widely attended traveling exhibition on Holocaust education and remembrance.
The Courage to Remember is running through November 29, 2014 at the Richard and Pat Johnson Palm Beach County History Museum in downtown West Palm Beach (300 N. Dixie Highway). Click here to learn more about this exhibit, or click here for directions.
This unique Holocaust exhibit, produced by the educational arm of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, features 200 exclusive photographs that offer unique insight into the Holocaust. The exhibit is divided into four distinct themes:
- Nazi Germany, 1933-1938
- Moving Toward the "Final Solution," 1939-1941
- Annihilation in Nazi-occupied Europe, 1941-1945
- Liberation, Building New Lives
Through Federation's OneWorld project and the Davis Family Tolerance grant, we are providing buses for students in our area to visit The Courage to Remember.
OneWorld: Davis Family Tolerance Project is Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County’s community-wide effort promoting tolerance, diversity and the Jewish value of chesed (“kindness”) through inspiring programs that encourage an actively compassionate and caring Palm Beach County.
