First visitors to HMLC learn the history of the Holocaust, then with the aid of technology, confront today’s local and international issues of hate, discrimination and ethnic conflict.
Opens: Thurs., Dec. 6, 9:45 a.m. at the Holocaust Museum in the Jewish Federation Kopolow Building
A 65-inch interactive wall-mounted touch screen that offers contemporary examples of hate, discrimination and ethnic conflict to demonstrate that the lessons of the Holocaust are not yet learned, is the newest exhibit to open in the St. Louis Holocaust Museum and Learning Center (HMLC). This innovative exhibition, which was done in partnership with the Anti-Defamation League, HateBrakers, and Webster University, will debut on Thursday, Dec. 6, 9:45 a.m. in the Jewish Federation Kopolow Building, 12 Millstone Campus Drive. It is the only exhibit of its type in a Holocaust Museum that is presented through the benefit of technology in a user-friendly way for visitors and educators. More than 30,000 visitors to the Holocaust Museum each year, including 22,000 school children, will have an opportunity to view and use this exhibition.
