The Curtis Laws Wilson Library at Missouri S&T is one of 50 U.S. libraries selected to host Americans and the Holocaust, a traveling exhibition from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum that examines the motives, pressures and fears that shaped Americans’ responses to Nazism, war and genocide in Europe during the 1930s and 1940s.
The touring library exhibition — based on the special exhibition of the same name at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. — is traveling to libraries throughout the U.S., beginning in 2021 and concluding in 2023.
“We are so proud to be selected from a pool of more than 250 applicants to host this important and powerful exhibition,” says Roger Weaver, interim dean of S&T’s library. “As the only library in Missouri selected as a site, we encourage community members to come explore it. We’re also excited to partner with our local schools to host field trips. The exhibition will challenge people to not only ask ‘what would I have done?’ but also, ‘what will I do?’”
Americans and the Holocaust will be on display at Missouri S&T’s Curtis Laws Wilson Library, along with a series of related special events, from Sunday, Sept. 18, to Saturday, Oct. 22 during the following hours:
