When Courage to Remember Traveling Exhibit was designed thirty years ago, it was a reminder that the senseless acts of persecution and genocide from the Nazi Holocaust should never be forgotten. Yet, decades later, hate, bigotry, antisemitism, and genocide are still widespread in the world and even in our own communities.
Courage to Remember has traveled to more than 50 countries and seen by more than 20 million visitors. This exhibit continues to inspire visitors to stand up against hate and bigotry. This exhibit brings the past alive with large, illustrated panels that enable visitors to read about events of the Holocaust, as well as excerpts from first-person accounts of persecution and survival. Courage to Remember hopes to inspire young and old alike to explore history, combat bigotry, and fight for injustice.
