Never Again poster sampleThe final exhibit of the term is up on the 3rd floor of the library and continues with the term-long theme of ‘NEVER AGAIN’:

Holocaust Posters, 1933-1945
An Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith Poster Exhibit

This evocative poster series begins in pre-Holocaust Europe, when Jewish communities were centers of cultural and social ferment. The ensuing horror is unforgettably invoked in these posters, which portray a word gone mad and another world isolated and destroyed.

Exhibit Dates: November 7 – December 11

New exhibit now open: Hiroshima Ground Zero

Hiroshima Ground ZeroThe second of the featured traveling exhibits making a stop at Hamersly Library this fall is open for visitors. The Hiroshima Ground Zero exhibit is made up of a series of posters from the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum in Japan that inform of the aftermath and effects of nuclear weapons. Designed for schools and suitable for all ages, the posters promote peace through education.

The exhibit will run from Friday, October 16th – Sunday, November 1st on the 3rd floor of the library. In conjunction with the exhibit, we will be hosting a lecture from Hiroshima survivor, Ed Kawasaki of Portland on Wednesday, October 28th at 4:00 p.m. in HL 107. See a full schedule of events here.
