Yad Vashem Exhibit "Shoah: How Was it Humanly Possible?" on Display at Belk Library 
The noted traveling exhibit "Shoah: How Was it Humanly Possible?" from Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, in Jerusalem will be on display on the first and fourth floors of Belk Library and Information Commons from March 17 until April 17, 2020. The exhibition examines major historical aspects of the Holocaust, beginning with Jewish life in pre-Holocaust Europe and ending with the liberation of Nazi concentration and extermination camps across the continent and the remarkable return to life of the survivors. 

The exhibit comes to ASU as a result of a cooperation between Yad Vashem, the Center for Judaic, Holocaust, and Peace Studies, and Belk Library and Information Commons. In light of the renewed rise of anti-Semitism and racial hatred, white supremacy, and deadly terrorist attacks from Halle, Germany, to Pittsburgh, U.S., to Christchurch, New Zealand, the exhibit could not be more timely. The accompanying program includes a visit and presentation by the 1930-born Holocaust and Auschwitz survivor Dr. Zev Harel.
