The Little Egg Harbor branch of Ocean County Library (290 Mathistown Rd.) will host a two-month-long exhibit about the Holocaust and genocide during October and November.
“Holocaust and Genocide: The Betrayal of Humanity Exhibit” is on loan from the Jewish Community Relations Council, the public policy and human relations agency of the Jewish Federation of Southern NJ.
The 14-panel photograph exhibit is accompanied by a DVD that includes survivor’s and liberator’s testimonies. The photographs record events from 1933 until the victims were freed in 1945.
“The goal of the exhibit is to raise awareness of not only the Holocaust, but of the larger issue of genocide around the world,” said Branch Manager Kelly-Ann Pennell.
The library will also host a reception Wednesday Oct. 20 at 6 p.m.
The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. For more information contact the operator at the branch (609) 294-1197.
The exhibit, prepared by The Goodwin Holocaust Museum and Education Center of the Delaware Valley, Cherry Hill, has appeared throughout the state, including Battleship New Jersey; Camden County College’s William G. Rohrer Center; Burlington County College and the Center for Social Justice, Parker Center; and the Mercer County Holocaust/Genocide Resource Center, Mercer County Community College, West Windsor campus.
