Holocaust Traveling Exhibition

The Betsy Rodgers Allen Gallery in School Centre Region Library will present a community exhibition of local art work in response to the Americans and the Holocaust traveling exhibition coming to University Libraries, Penn State University in January 2022. 

According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum,

“Holocaust history raises important questions about what Europeans could’ve done to stop the rise of Nazism in Germany and its assault on Europe’s Jews. Questions also must be asked of the international community, including the United States. What did the U.S. government and the American people know about the threats posed by Nazi Germany? What responses were possible? And When? This exhibition examines the motives, pressures, and fears that shaped Americans’ responses to Nazism, war, and genocide.”

Creating a Local Response 

We encourage and welcome your artistic response as part of this community exhibition.

Art and poetry should be developed as a reflection on the traveling exhibition. Examples and details from the exhibition are available at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
