Exhibit Area VII
The newest exhibit in the Holocaust Museum and Learning Center, uses contemporary examples of bias, discrimination and genocide to show that the lessons of the Holocaust are not yet learned. The exhibit uses a large wall-mounted touchscreen monitor and three smaller touch-screen workstations to tell stories from around the globe, and to demonstrate how the progression of hate spirals downward from stereotypes and prejudice to discrimination, violence and, in the worst situations, to genocide.
Visitors are encouraged:
- to KNOW these events are happening today.
- to LEARN the facts about the events and people involved.
- to DO something after leaving the museum, from learning more to discussing this at home, to taking action when they see injustice. Questions for discussion are included throughout the exhibit to encourage visitors to continue the conversation.
The smaller handicap-accessible workstations are available for visitors to use independently to view the exhibit in more detail or to research these issues further.
