This collection addresses the issue of antisemitism in the United States leading up to and during the Holocaust. Anti semitism was displayed in America through cartoons, preferences of American citizens, discriminatory policies, as well as support for the Nazi party. There was anti semitism present throughout America, and such anti semitism became obvious through a lack of action during the Holocaust. Juxtaposed against this striking anti semitism are the American people and groups that worked to help Jews and fought for their equality. Despite the inaction promoted through anti semitism, many groups did work against discrimination and the Nazi goal.
This collection serves as an exploration of America’s direct involvement in the Holocaust. Through the use of American propaganda, stories of the rescue and liberation of Jewish people in Europe, and images of remembrance and memorial, this exhibit intends to shed light on the bleak but often romanticized narrative that is the United States’ response to the Holocaust. The exhibit focuses on America’s role in helping to stop the Holocaust, or at certain points their lack thereof, though the nation’s contributions to the situation through their belief systems, actions, and policies. The exhibit seeks to explore the contrast of anti-Semitism in American citizens and those who fought to free the victims of anti-Semitism in Europe, in addition to However, what is drawn from this idea is what we remember in our collective memory. While remembering those who suffered, as well as those who rescued the suffering, the United States must not dismiss the prevalence of anti-Semitism in America at the time of the mass genocide, whether it was in the form of anti-Jewish rallies or in the form of legislation.
With America's memory of the holocaust slowly fading away, now it is more important than ever to spread information about the holocaust. In the words of George Santayana "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." We must continue to teach the next generations of Americans about this horrific event so that nothing of its kind will ever happen again. This collection is centered around America's response to the holocaust. It has a focus around media and public opinion. Within this curated exhibit are photos and artifacts pertaining to this topic.
