The Holocaust Education Center of the Champaign-Urbana Jewish Federation is partnering with the Simon Wiesenthal Center to the bring Courage to Remember: The Holocaust, 1939-45 Traveling Exhibit to Champaign-Urbana. The exhibit will be on display at the Champaign-Urbana Elks Lodge from May 15-26.

Courage to Remember was first designed thirty years ago and has since been on display in 50 countries and seen by more than 20 million people. The exhibit combines large, illustrated panels with excerpts from first-person accounts from survivors of the Holocaust. Brian B. Kahn, co-chair of the Holocaust Education Center, said that he hopes this exhibit “will encourage visitors to better understand the atrocities of the Holocaust (1939-45), as well as the many connections to present day antisemitism.”

The exhibit will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. most days, but visitors are encouraged to check the daily schedule as the hours will occasionally be changed to accommodate other events.
