Holocaust Remembered recalls the harrowing history of World War II. It follows the history of the Nazis and their collaborators throughout Europe and clarifies the aim of their “Final Solution,” the extermination of all the Jews of Europe. This exhibition of 24 panels, created by the Columbia Holocaust Education Commission (CHEC) in 2006, tracks this history, but places its emphasis on some of the people from South Carolina who played a significant role in liberating the concentration camps, including their eyewitness accounts.

Holocaust Remembered also highlights the Jewish Holocaust Survivor families that immigrated to South Carolina, and speaks to the lessons we all can learn from the history of the Holocaust. Located on 2nd floor lobby. For additional information on this exhibition or the CHEC, visit the website.

Of the members of the Stern family pictured in the summer of 1925, only Ben, the baby at front, and his oldest sister Zoscia "Sofie," sixth from left, survived the Holocaust.
