#Americans and the Holocaust Traveling Exhibition

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 runs September 6 - October 12 at the Main Library. During that time, will offer several timeslots for field trips for teachers and their students (8th grade and up).

Note: This is not a docent-led tour, but there are teaching materials available for educators as well as additional Lesson Plans from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Pick a timeslot to bring your class to the Americans and the Holocaust Exhibition at the Main Library.
