Bystander to Upstander: The Power of One During and After the Holocaust Traveling Display
New Richmond Branch
Friday, May. 31, During Library Hours
Visit the Bystander to Upstander: The Power of One During and After the Holocaust Traveling Display at the New Richmond Library from May 6-May 31, 2019 during library hours.

The Holocaust was a watershed event and one of the most horrific of the twentieth century. It is an example of how a community of indifference can lead to genocide; yet, by highlighting the power of the collective, it also illuminates the potential one person has to make a difference— for better or for worse.

This traveling exhibit examines examples of bystanders who remained silent in the face of Nazi persecution and ultimately genocide, while also exploring the motivation of upstanders, those who chose not to stand by and instead stood up and spoke out against the Nazi regime.

The exhibit sheds light on critical yet often overlooked perspectives of the Holocaust, while encouraging viewers to think about their own action or inaction.
