A WALK TO REMEMBER

YOM HASHOAH, April 7-8, 2021

A walkable exhibit through Holocaust history. Learn, share, remember. 

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum implores us to "Never Forget" the Holocaust - a call to remember the conditions, violence, and victims of the Holocaust.

 

With this call to action in mind, we're dedicating the opening of this digital exhibit on Yom Hashoah, the International Holocaust Remembrance Day. In this exhibit you can explore the research projects of students in Mercyhurst University's History & Memory of the Holocaust class. We have organized our research projects into three themes: gender and sexuality in the Holocaust; media and censorship in the Holocaust era; and refugee experiences after the Holocaust. Each of the research projects have been distilled into short podcast episodes, written, recorded, and produced by the students in the class.

 

This website also features a downloadable and printable temporary physical exhibit, which we invite you to install on your own campus. This year, in which many of our centers of memory are closed to the public, we thought it might be useful to have a widely accessible walking tour to help us all remember, and never forget.
