Champaign, Illinois (April 24, 2023)—"Courage to Remember: The Holocaust, 1939-45 Traveling Exhibit” will be on display at the Champaign-Urbana Elks Lodge in Champaign, Illinois from May 15-26.
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. Our hope is that this exhibit will help people to draw these connections and inspire them to take action.
Courage to Remember has traveled to more than 50 countries and been seen by more than 20 million visitors. The 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.
