Hey readers! Here is the event suggested last night -- Tuesday night is the reception with a survivor but the exhibit runs for about a month.

If I can, I'll attend the opening night. Either way, we can set up a group date to go check out the exhibit and give people a chance to discuss the books they missed! Monday or Tuesdays they are open until 8pm or we could do a Sunday, too. Thoughts?

On display June 24 - July 15
Traveling Panel Exhibition at Bull Street Library, 652-3600

This year marks the 50th anniversary of key events in the Civil Rights Movement and
now citizens across Georgia will have the opportunity to gain a uniquely local
perspective on the struggle against discrimination.

William Alexander Scott III was a photographer in a segregated battalion of the United States Army during World War II. His witness testimony of the liberation of Buchenwald is told in the travelling exhibit “Witness to the Holocaust”, which draws parallels between the Jim Crow laws here and the Nuremberg Race laws of 1935‐1945 implemented in Germany and Nazi-controlled areas of Europe.

Opening Reception
Tusday, June 25, 6:30 p.m.
Speaker: Dr. Eugen Schoenfeld, Holocaust survivor

2013 Library Tour presented by Georgia Commission on the Holocaust in partnership with the Georgia Public Library Service. This tour is supported in part with a grant from the Georgia Humanities Council.

Wish I could go Tuesday, but have family in town this week. I could do a Monday or Tuesday after this week or Sundays are usually pretty open for me too.
