The Library and the Dorothy Stang Center have collaborated to bring A Reason to Remember, a traveling exhibit developed by the Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, to the Library from August 1st to September 29th. The exhibit presents victims and survivors of the Holocaust through the stories of five Jewish families living in Roth, Germany. In collaboration with Professor Miriam Zimmerman, the Library is hosting a panel discussion on September 15th from 2 pm to 4:30 pm.
I visited the exhibit this week and took the above photo. It is well worth visiting!
