The Courage to Remember: The Holocaust 1933-1945
"The Courage to Remember" is both a tribute and a warning; a tribute to the six million Jews and millions of others, including Gypsies, Slavs, political dissenters, homosexuals, and prisoners of war, who were murdered by the Nazis between 1933 and 1945; and a warning that the root causes of the Holocaust persist. Racial hatred, economic crises, human psychological and moral flaws, the complacency or complicity of ordinary individuals in the persecution of their neighbors are still ominously common. Remembrance, vigilance and moral commitment are required if the lives of the victims of the Holocaust are to have an enduring meaning.
This unique poster series from the Simon Wiesenthal Center is ideal for commemorative or educational use in community centers, high schools and universities, libraries, synagogues and churches, and by other interested organizations and individuals. As an educational tool, it can be used as the centerpiece for special events, or as a visual curriculum for educators.
The exhibit consists of forty (40), color, framed posters containing over 200 original photographs that cover the basic history and facts about the Holocaust. Each poster measures 27" x 42". The posters travel in 4 wooden crates, each measuring 48" L x 23" W x 33 1/2 " H.
The posters can be wall-mounted or displayed on easels. The Birmingham Holocaust Education Center (BHEC) as table-top easels for loan.
