Americans and the Holocaust

October 25, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - November 17, 2021 @ 5:00 pm CDT


Nebraska Wesleyan University is one of 50 U.S. libraries to host Americans and the Holocaust, a traveling exhibition from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. This exhibit will showcase 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 Museum in Washington, D.C. — will travel to U.S. libraries from 2020 to 2022.

“Nebraska Wesleyan is so proud to be selected to host such an impactful exhibit,” said Julie Pinnell, NWU University Librarian. “This is a great opportunity for the community to experience a piece of history from a standpoint many have not explored. We look forward to hosting several local schools and seeing many of our fellow Lincolnites at this thought-provoking exhibit.”



Americans and the Holocaust will be on display at Nebraska Wesleyan’s Cochrane-Woods Library, along with a series of related special events, from October 6 to November 17.
