World War II: The War That Changed the World
This exhibition explores the war and its broad global impact. Visitors will encounter individuals who experienced the effects of the war and the Holocaust: from rationing, to new opportunities to work and to fight, to the struggle to survive increasingly oppressive and deadly conditions in Europe.
The exhibit was made possible with a 2018 grant from the Breman Foundation based in Atlanta, Georgia. Created especially with the needs and interests of older adults in mind, the exhibit is accompanied by a gallery guide and audio guide as well as a series of traveling trunks featuring books and films along with discussion guides ideal for senior centers and community centers. The following is a list of available trunks.
- Defiance (Defiance by Nechama Tec; Defiance, directed by Edward Zwick)
- Denial (Denying the Holocaust by Deborah Lipstadt; Denial, directed by Mick Jackson)
- Farewell to Manzanar (Farewell to Manzanar by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston and James D. Houston; Farewell to Manzanar, directed by John Korty)
