CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center Hosting New Rotating Exhibit Space
CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center has added a new addition to their museum exhibition space which will feature a series of rotating exhibits from Yad Vashem – The World Holocaust Remembrance Center. Yad Vashem describes these exhibits as being “designed to promote dialogue about the Holocaust, to impart its universal lessons, and to foster connection to its relevance to daily life in the 21 century.”
The new rotating exhibit space encourages new and past guests to learn more about the Holocaust and grow in their understanding of the subject. Each exhibit will be displayed for a period of two months before being rotated out to accommodate a new exhibit.
The first exhibit in this rotating series is titled “SHOAH: How Was It Humanly Possible?” This exhibit focuses on the timeline and major historical aspects of the Holocaust, beginning with life before the war for the Jews in Europe and continuing through the liberation of Holocaust survivors and their return to their lives after the Holocaust. The exhibit is on display from September 3 through October 30.
The next exhibit is titled, “Stars without a Heaven: Children of the Holocaust”. Those interested in the exhibit schedule can find more information on the CANDLES website or by calling or emailing CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center.
CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center is currently open to the public every Friday & Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM. For up-to-date hours of operations please like their Facebook page.
