A Minnesota Testimony:
Historians, Artists and Survivors Discuss the Holocaust
May to September 2006
Minnesota History Center

Between 1933 and 1945, the Nazi government and its allies systematically persecuted and murdered six million Europeans Jews and millions of other people judged to be inferior or enemies. Sixty years later, the Holocaust continues to influence politics, art and daily life the world over.

“The Holocaust: A Minnesota Testimony” features Minnesota historians, artists and survivors in six afternoon programs at the Minnesota History Center. Participants will examine the history of the Holocaust and its resonance in Minnesotans’ lives today.

“A Minnesota Testimony” is offered as part of the History Center’s showing of two exhibitions from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.: “The Nazi Olympics: Berlin 1936” on display Apr. 15 through July 4, and “Life in Shadows: Hidden Children and the Holocaust” showing July 20 through Oct. 15. Both exhibitions are sponsored by Target.

The exhibit is presented in conjunction with the Society’s ongoing Minnesota's Greatest Generation project, which looks at the generation that grew up in the 1930’s, came of age during World War II and participated in the postwar boom years, and how events at home and abroad affected their lives and that of all Minnesotans.
