This series, unique in range and scope, is ideal for commemorative or education use in community centers, high schools and universities, libraries, synagogues and churches, and by other interested organizations and individuals. The Wiesenthal Center has created a powerful and comprehensive educational tool which can be used as the centerpiece for special events, or as a visual curriculum for educators. The 40 individual full-color posters can be wall mounted, displayed on easels, set up in classrooms, used as handouts, or framed as a permanent exhibition.
“The Courage to Remember” 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.
Racial hatred, economic crises, human psychological and moral flaws, the complacency or complicity of ordinary individuals in the persecution of their neighbors are still ominously common. Rememberance, vigilance and moral commitment are required if the lives of the victims of the Holocaust are to have an enduring meaning.
