Exhibit #8 – Hope for the Future (Pavilion)

In this exhibit, we wish to instill hope for a better world.  How can we have hope?   Reading the stories of those who survived the Holocaust and built new lives for themselves can remind us not to underestimate the power of human determination.   Interviewing people who combat injustice in today’s world can strengthen our resolve to see modern-day prejudice, persecution, slavery, and genocide ended in our lifetime.   Although changing societal mindsets can be a very long process, and uprooting personal prejudices can be complicated, each person can choose to heed the signs of persecution and impending genocide in his own community and culture; each person can choose not to remain silent in the face of injustice.
