'Americans and the Holocaust'

This Weekend
Daily, Now - January 1, 2021
From: 10:00 AM to 5:20 PM

This exhibition is a portrait of American society that shows how the Depression, isolationism, xenophobia, racism, and antisemitism shaped responses to Nazism and the Holocaust. It reveals how much information was available to Americans at the time and asks why rescuing Jews did not become a priority, except for a few individuals who took the risk to help.

This exhibition is located in the Sidney Kimmel and Rena Rowan Exhibition Gallery. It is free and open to the public during Museum hours. No passes required.
