"Holocaust Remembered" Exhibit at McKissick Museum
"Holocaust Remembered," a traveling exhibit created by the Columbia Holocaust Education Commission, takes visitors on a journey through the worst of the Holocaust for European Jews
trapped in Nazi concentration camps, the horror that liberators saw when they arrived at the camps and eventually the vibrant lives survivors and liberators went on to build in South Carolina.
Especially with International Remembrance Day on Jan. 27, co-creator Lyssa Harvey is excited that students and other members of the USC community have the chance to see the project that has been visited by more than 6,000 South Carolina students.
"We also really wanted a presence at McKissick and at University of South Carolina," she said. The exhibit has previously been featured at the Katie and Irwin Kahn Jewish Community Center, South Carolina State Museum, Columbia Convention Center and South Carolina Statehouse. '"There's a large presence of, I think, tolerance on our campus."
