Traveling Holocaust exhibit on display at Glen Cove Museum

The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center in Nassau County has brought the world-famous “Courage to Remember” travel exhibit to the Glen Cove Museum to fight anti-Semitism and increase its educational awareness programs.

Courage to remember is an exhibition of 40 panels on the Nazi Holocaust written and compiled by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, one of the largest international Jewish human rights organizations.

The exhibition – which serves as a tribute to the six million Jews and others murdered by the Nazis between 1933 and 1945, and a warning that the root causes of the Holocaust continue – has been seen in more than 40 countries, translated into 13 language and has been seen by more than 10 million people, organizers said.

Courage to Remember is told through four main themes: the rise of Nazi Germany; the step towards the ‘final solution’, annihilation in Nazi-occupied Europe and the liberation of Holocaust camps.

Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean and director of the Social Action Agenda at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, said the power of the exhibition is its ability to educate a new generation about both the horrors of the Holocaust and the movement that allowed it to happen.

“The deeper meaning of this exhibition … is that we want to educate a generation of young people who will take personal responsibility for what they do,” Cooper said during a news conference Monday before the exhibition opens in Nassau. “Who will have to implement critical thinking when contacted to join a group or to take on a particular action.”

Andrea Bolender, acting executive director and chairman of the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center, said the exhibit fits perfectly with the museum, which teaches anti-Semitism, racism, bullying and intolerance. The museum also plans to share the exhibit with local schools and local organizations.

“This exhibit is a wonderful addition to our museum, which year-round presents a detailed chronicle of the Holocaust using multimedia exhibits, photographs, artifacts and testimonies from Long Island survivors and liberators,” Bolender said.

Late. John Brooks (D-Seaford) said across the globe that people are actively trying to “rewrite history” and avoid telling painful truths.

“It’s incredibly dangerous,” Brooks said. “We do not want to see history repeat itself. If we do not know the truth, we will not understand when history is repeating itself. I think it is critically important that people have the opportunity to see real history. with their own eyes. “
