Holocaust exhibit takes trip to Mahoning Valley

Holocaust exhibit visits Austintown and Hubbard schools.


LIBERTY, Ohio (WYTV) – A traveling Holocaust exhibit from Israel was in the Valley on Monday, just in time for International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Students at the Jewish Community Center in Liberty got a first look at it. Israeli Holocaust educators taught kids about what happened during World War II, focusing on concepts of resistance and rebellion. They said they hoped that the students would look at the exhibit for inspiration and hope.

“The society that we live in today, both in Israel and in America is something that requires us to look around and to critique and do something to change to make it better,” said

The exhibit remained at the Jewish Community Center until 4 p.m. Monday. Admission was free.

On Tuesday, the exhibit will move to the Austintown Middle School and Hubbard High School.
