Carroll High School will host the traveling exhibit on loan from the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center on Tuesday, February 27, 2018, from 4 - 8 p.m. to the general public. The exhibit will include a short film “Why We Should Remember,” a light reception from 5 - 6 p.m. as well as artwork produced by Carroll High School’s APUSH and U.S. History students.
Donations will be accepted for the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center as well as the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous. This sensitive exhibit of photography and art offers a special glimpse into the private memories of 20 Alabama Holocaust survivors, revealing stories of childhoods past, lost family and friends, despair and sadness, cruelty beyond belief, bravery, the joys of liberation, and new lives in Alabama.
Through bold and thought-provoking images accompanied by educational narratives, one gains a richer understanding of the history of the Holocaust and its impact on these individuals and their families.
Area teachers desiring a tour of the exhibit with their classes may contact Rachel Povlacs at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a tour.
