Visit the Lydia M. Olson Library to see AMERICANS AND THE HOLOCAUST 

Americans and the Holocaust

The Lydia M. Olson Library will host an opening reception for 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.

Olson Library was selected as one of 50 U.S. libraries to present the touring version of the Americans and the Holocaust special exhibition, which opened in April 2018 at the Museum in Washington, D.C., during the Museum’s 25th anniversary.

The library’s reception will feature remarks by Leslie Warren and Dr. Robbie Goodrich and a special opportunity to tour the exhibition. Light refreshments will be served, and all ages are welcome.

Americans and the Holocaust will be on display at the Olson Library, along with a series of related special events, through October 23, 2022. Admission is free.

Americans and the Holocaust: A Traveling Exhibition for Libraries is made possible by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the American Library Association.
