The Northeast Florida Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education put on a multi-panel large format exhibition this past month, called ‘Shoah - The Holocaust:  How was it Humanly Possible?’  This multi-panel large format expo was produced and provided by Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem. 

 

                The exhibition began in late April at the Wilson Center for the Performing Arts on the Campus of Florida State College at Jacksonville, South Campus (11901 Beach Blvd .) and runs through Friday, May 5th. This self-guided exhibition is open to the public and covers the history of the Holocaust from the rise of Nazism in Germany through the liberation of the concentration and extermination camps at the end of World War II. 

 

                In addition to the exhibit the Northeast Florida Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education is in the midst of hosting two special events, a film screening of the film ‘Conspiracy’, which took place late last month, and on Tuesday, May 2nd, the Northeast Florida Center will welcome Holocaust survivor Manfred Katz who will bravely share his story.  The event will be preceded by a brief presentation on the history of the Holocaust and will be followed by a question and answer session. The Exhibition and the evening event are open to the public and are free of charge.
