Click here for information on the closing program for Unlocking the Gates of Auschwitz 70 Years Later on May 27th. 

 

The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education featuring the Steven F. Cassidy Collection, in partnership with Cincinnati Museum Center and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, has developed and built a powerful exhibition commemorating the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

Through artifacts, incredible photographs and powerful personal stories, Unlocking the Gates of Auschwitz 70 Years Later gives voice to the survivors and eyewitnesses of Auschwitz, telling the heartbreaking stories of death and the remarkable stories of life inside a hellish world devoid of humanity and decency.

In the heart of a civilized world it seemed incomprehensible that humans could be capable of committing such unspeakable atrocities. But the artifacts, photos and stories of the Holocaust awaken one’s conscience to the grim reality that exists in parts of the world where fear, hatred and ignorance reign. Unlocking the Gates of Auschwitz 70 Years Later gives a voice to the survivors and eyewitnesses of Auschwitz and invites us today to stand up against injustice around the world.

After touring Unlocking the Gates of Auschwitz 70 Years Later and The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, contact Trinity Ruggles at The Center for Holocaust & Humanity Education to schedule a tour of CHHE’s permanent exhibit, Mapping Our Tears, and schedule a Holocaust survivor to speak to your group! We are the last generation able to hear survivors, firsthand, share their stories of loss, resilience, and rebuilding. Don’t miss your opportunity to add this option to your overall experience.

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center will be open for special hours on Sunday, April 12 and Sunday, April 26 from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm. To schedule a tour of Unlocking the Gates, please contact James Harrington at [email protected].
