Partnership2Gether Holocaust Exhibit Comes to Louisville

Partnership2Gether Holocaust Exhibit – From the ashes of the Holocaust, hope arises today as the study of those horrendous events leads to values-based educational discussions. On January 31, the Partnership2Gether Arts and Community Task Force is bringing a unique exhibit and discussion starting with the Holocaust to the Louisville Free Public Library’s Main Branch at 301 York Street.

The Holocaust Day Project “Rebellion of Hope” will be on exhibit, and at 2:30 p.m., Israeli docent/educators will guide people through the interactive exhibit.

The exhibit weaves stories and questions into a constructive narrative of the Holocaust, while strengthening the memory of the Holocaust and its lessons in a way that challenges participants to examine their own thoughts and actions.

Through the exhibit participants will encounter a wide variety of choices made by those individuals and organizations that made the brave choice to resist in the face of the many moral dilemmas brought about by these extreme conditions. Examination of these choices will enable participants to explore how the concept of resistance applies to our lives today.

The exhibition was created by the Dror Israel movement and is guided by its experienced educators all over Israel. It has been translated and adapted to the needs of an English speaking audience. It is a project of the Akko Educators’ Kibbutz and is based on the values of democracy, peace, tikkun olam and shared existence.

Through Partnership2Gether, our Louisville Jewish community has been enriched with medical, educational and cultural exchanges since the program began in 1997. The Jewish Community of Louisville is a member of the Central Area Consortium of communities partnered with the Western Galilee.
