The Simon Wiesenthal Center has three landmark exhibitions that have been displayed in the Vatican, on Capitol Hill, at the UN and other parts of the US and the world. Those exhibits are: People, Book, Land: The 3,500 Year Relationship of the Jewish People With the Holy Land, The Birth of Israel: 18 Months That Change Jewish Destiny, and Courage to Remember.
“The Courage to Remember” is both a tribute and a warning; a tribute to the six million Jews and millions of others, including Gypsies, Slavs, political dissenters, homosexuals, and prisoners of war, who were murdered by the Nazis between 1933 and 1945; and a warning that the root causes of the Holocaust persist.
People, Book Land: The 3,500 Year Relationship of the Jewish People with the Holy Land
From the Vatican and Capitol Hill to Paris and Chicago, the first-of-its-kind historical exhibit, “People, Book, Land – The 3,500 Year Relationship of the Jewish People to the Holy Land” was developed by the Simon Wiesenthal Center and co-sponsored by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The exhibit is designed to be a tool in the ongoing fight against the current resurgence of anti-Semitism.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center‘s newest traveling exhibition tells the story of the 18 months leading up to the creation of the state of Israel in 1948. It contains original documents, historic photos and remarkable stories. The 20 panels that make up the exhibit highlight the Jewish people's long journey home, the struggle for a Jewish state, the leading figures who advocated for statehood and the villains who tried to block it.
