Please join me as Irvine Valley College and the Foundation For California present “The Courage To Remember,” an educational exhibit on the history of the Holocaust.
The opening reception is Monday, March 11, 2019, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Irvine Valley College Performing Arts Center, 5500 Irvine Center Dr., Irvine CA 92618.
The exhibit will remain open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12 through Thursday, March 14, 2019.
Both the exhibit are the reception are free.
Produced by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, this exhibit is both a tribute and a warning; a tribute to the six million Jews and millions of others, including Gypsies, Slavs, political dissenters, homosexuals, and prisoners of war, who were murdered by the Nazis between 1933 and 1945; and a warning that the root causes of the Holocaust persist.
Especially in light of recent events, we must have the courage to remember and study the Holocaust, no matter how disturbing these studies and memories may be. For only informed, understanding, and morally committed individuals can prevent such persecution from happening to vulnerable minorities again.

I hope to see you there!
