Jacksonville Public Library is one of 50 U.S. libraries selected to host Americans and the Holocaust, a traveling exhibition from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum that examines the motives, pressures and fears that shaped Americans’ responses to Nazism, war and genocide in Europe during the 1930s and 1940s.
The exhibition will be at the Main Library from September 6 – October 12, 2023. During that time, we will offer timeslots for field trips. You can reserve a timeslot for your class by registering for a field trip. This is not a docent-led tour, but there are teaching materials below for educators. Click the button below to register.
