December 21 – March 14
Originally developed and shown in the Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds in Nuremberg, Germany in 2004, this exhibition narrates the story of the nazification of the youth of Germany. It shows how the Nazi state, through its control of the education system and though a massive propaganda effort, was able to seduce the youth of Germany into active participation in its destructive mission.
The exhibit traces the use of children by the Third Reich, first as enthusiastic fans and eventually as underage soldiers, through the story of one young man, Paul Bayer. Although each story of Hitler’s child followers is unique, we can see in this boy’s experiences how it happened that many children fell prey to propaganda. It serves as a lesson to anyone — parent, teacher, or interested community member — how easy it might be to lead young hearts and minds astray.
March 14 – June 3
Silent Voices Speak was created to give voice to those who were hushed by the Holocaust. Artist Barbara Shilo, who escaped from Europe in 1938, created mixed media images based on wartime black and white photographs. Through them, she helps us be witnesses to the brutality of the Nazis and the dehumanization of their victims, leaving the viewer with a deeper understanding of the human cost of intolerance.
Silent Voices Speak was created to bring people together to promote a common goal: ensuring that the most horrifying event of the 20th century will never be forgotten. It can teach new generations about the events that the world must never forget; it can make us more keenly aware of our obligation to remember.
