The Foundation for California presents “The Courage to Remember” Holocaust Exhibit at the La Habra Library

On Tuesday, September 3rd, Supervisor Nelson joined educational, government and religious leaders for the opening Ceremony of the Foundation For California “The Courage To Remember” holocaust exhibit which is now on display at the La Habra Library. Supervisor Nelson was honored to provide comments at the opening ceremony and was amazed at how many young people attended to learn of the atrocities and horror of the Holocaust. “The Courage to Remember” is a 42 panel educational exhibit on the Holocaust of 1933-1945. With 200 original photographs, many never seen before by the general public, the exhibit offers a powerful insight into the Holocaust.

The crimes of the Nazis during the Holocaust serve as a dark chapter of the 20th century. Yet, the causes of the Holocaust remain with us today. Man’s flawed nature, racism and the complacency of ordinary people in the persecution of others persist; therefore, so does the need for this exhibit. Individual citizens must have the courage to remember, educate themselves of this tragedy and commit to prevent such crimes from happening again.

This exhibit is produced by the Simon Wiesenthal Center and brought to you by the Foundation For California and the La Habra Library. It will be displayed at the La Habra Library from September 3-22, 2013 (Monday-Thursday, 10:00AM-8:00PM; Friday & Saturday: 10:00AM-5:00PM; Sunday: 12:00-5:00PM).
