One comment on “Courage to Remember: Exhibit & Reception

  1. Ahlam Muhtaseb says:

    It is very important to always remember the holocaust so genocide would never be repeated. However, genocide is still in process in Palestine with the help of organizations like the so-called “Museum of Torrance”. The Museum of Tolerance, a project of the Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center, is in the process of building a museum on top of an ancient Muslim cemetery in occupied East Jerusalem that dates back to the seventh century. It’s a museum that most Palestinians will be prohibited from visiting, due to Israel’s racist restrictions on movement of Palestinians. It is ironic that the library would partner with a very intolerant organization that supports apartheid and racism.
