Courage to Remember, a special exhibition, created in Los Angeles by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, offers compelling new insight into the Holocaust. The story unfolds through four major themes:

Nazi Germany, 1933 – 1938
Moving Toward the “Final Solution,” 1939 – 1941
Annihilation in Nazi-occupied Europe, 1941 – 1945
and Liberation – Building New Lives

The exhibit (40 individual panels) is available, at no cost, for commemorative or educational use in middle/high schools and universities, libraries, synagogues and churches, and by other interested organizations.

You can use the entire exhibit or select from our online catalogue specific panels you would like to display and/or use with your students.

The panels must be picked up and returned to the HHREC offices in White Plains, NY.
