The U.S. and the Holocaust

The U.S. and the Holocaust

The Holocaust Museum & Cohen Education Center and WGCU are proud to present a special program on October 27th at the Hilton Naples from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Renowned filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick will join us virtually to discuss their latest release: The U.S. and the Holocaust. The film by Ken Burns, Lynn Novick, and Sarah Botstein dispels the myth that Americans did not know the severity of the persecution of Jews in Europe.

The Holocaust on World Stamps

The Holocaust on World Stamps

The commemoration of World War II and the Holocaust takes many forms. One of the most visibly distinct could be the postage stamp on your daily mail. Postage stamps have long been a visually appealing way for countries to mark anniversaries and events and memorialize people. Countries often had design contests or commissioned special artwork for these stamps.
