DAYTON, Ohio -- "Prejudice & Memory: A Holocaust Exhibit" at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. (U.S. Air Force photo)
This exhibit is located in the hallway between the Early Years and Air Power Galleries.
"Prejudice & Memory: A Holocaust Exhibit" is made up of the photographs, artifacts and memories of people who now live in the Dayton, Ohio, area. Among the contributors are concentration camp survivors and their families, liberators and "righteous Gentiles" (non-Jews who helped Jews during the Holocaust).
It is one of the few such exhibits in the U.S. compiled to demonstrate one community's connection with this terrible event and to affirm the belief that learning about the Holocaust is the first step toward preventing its recurrence.
