SAPL Commemorates Holocaust Remembrance with Survivor Stories

In partnership with the Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio and the San Antonio Public Library Foundation, the San Antonio Public Library will present Holocaust: Learn and Remember. Learn and Remember aims to tell the stories of the victims of the Holocaust, including those who were not Jewish.

Holocaust: Learn and Remember will take place throughout the month of May. Survivor stories will be presented at several branch locations, and artifacts on loan from the Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio will be on display at additional branch locations system-wide.

Additionally, Connect at Central (Library) Technology Test Drive is hosting dedicated iPads exclusively to a “digital exhibit” commemorating Holocaust Remembrance. The exhibit will include access to the official website and digital, audio and video presentations created by the San Antonio Public Library and the Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio.

Holocaust: Learn and Remember events will take place at the following Library locations:
