The Holocaust Education Trust Ireland in association with Mémorial de la Shoah and the Donegal County Museum present a new travelling exhibition – ‘The HOLOCAUST IN EUROPE’

This travelling exhibition provides an overview of the Nazi regime in Europe through text and images; it provides detailed impressions of pre-war life, the years of terror and the aftermath.

Chief Executive of HETI, Lynn Jackson, said, “We are delighted to be working in association with Donegal County Museum as part of our outreach education Programme and that it is the first venue in Ireland to host it. It is intended that this exhibition will tour throughout the island of Ireland and serve as an important lesson in tolerance, respect and integration”.

This exhibition was launched by Mr Alan Shatter TD, Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence last month at the Department of Justice and Equality in Dublin. Minster Shatter remarked that “the importance of this exhibition is that it provides a global view of the Holocaust in Europe, starting with the growth of the Nazi movement, through the different stages of the persecution, inhumane treatment and extermination of millions of Jews and others, up to the Nuremburg Trials. It also gives a picture of both the political and military reactions of a number of States to this tragedy which included disinterest of some nations toward the fate of the Jews and looks at reactions at an individual level including Jewish resistance and the Righteous among Nations”.

The exhibition runs from Tuesday 21st February until Saturday 31st March Admission is free and all are welcome. Please contact the Museum to arrange group or class visits.
