Three schools in the region will host the Courage to Remember – a traveling exhibit produced by the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.
The museum is the educational arm of the Simon Wisenthal Center and features 200 exclusive photographs that offer a 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 the Nazi-occupied Europe, 1941-1945; and Liberation, Building New Lives.
“The Courage to Remember” is internationally acclaimed and has been on extensive tour for at least 20 years. The exhibit assists in educating today’s generation on the 20th century’s greatest crime in an effort to prevent similar catastrophes.
The exhibit was recently held at Shelburne Regional High School with students and community invited to attend.
The public is invited to attend its showing at three other schools in the Tri-County Regional School Board:
Yarmouth Consolidated Memorial High School: Feb. 12, 6 -8 p.m.
St. Mary’s Bay Academy: Feb. 19, 6-8 p.m
Digby Regional High School: March 5, 6-8 p.m.
*If school is closed due to weather on the day, it will be open the following day for viewing
