Days of Remembrance Observed at Walt Branch
Lincoln City Libraries will observe Days of Remembrance, the nation's annual commemoration of the Holocaust, with a week-long poster display and two films at Walt Branch Library, 6701 S. 14th Street.
A poster exhibit from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum will be on display during regular library hours from Sunday, May 1 through Sunday, May 8. The exhibit includes animated maps from the Museum website, personal histories of those affected by the Holocaust and a wall of names of those killed. The library will also have a display of library materials about the Holocaust available for checkout.
Two films produced by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum will be presented Sunday, May 1:
- The Path to Nazi Genocide from 2 to 2:45 p.m. uses rare footage to examine the Nazi rise to power in Germany and the consolidation of power throughout Europe and surrounding areas. By exploring ideology, propaganda and persecution of Jews and other victims, the film outlines the path by which the Nazis led a state to war and the murder of millions.
- One Survivor Remembers from 3 to 3:45 p.m. tells one woman's story of surviving the camps, slave labor and finally the Death Marches of the Holocaust. This film was produced by HBO and the Museum.
