Learn and Remember

 

The words “never again” have been used throughout history but originated after the Holocaust.   This exhibit and its accompanying events at the Branch Libraries of the San Antonio Public Library around the city, are a collaborative effort between The San Antonio Public Library, The SA Public Library Foundation, and The Holocaust Museum of San Antonio. In commemoration of the Shoah, we wanted to bring you an exhibit of the atrocities that occurred and the voices that are still among us, to bring awareness to our community.   The purpose of this is to show you historically what the Jews and others have been through and to hopefully touch each one of you in a way that you can help us educate your children, friends and families about the Holocaust.
