Genocide Exhibit Dedication

Faces of Genocide

Sunday, October 12, 2014 / 3:00 - 5:00 pm

After the Holocaust, the words Never Again sounded loudly as leaders pledged never again to remain silent in the face of mass extermination. But Never Again became Over and Over Again. The Holocaust was followed by genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda, Guatemala, East Timor, Darfur, and in many other places. Never Again must mean Never.

Join the HMC staff as we dedicate the Hersh Family Genocide Exhibit and commit to create a world without genocide. Special guest Dr. Ellen Kennedy, Executive Director of World Without Genocide, will present.

  • Admission: $5 or free with membership. Click here to Become a Member!
  • Kosher refreshments will be served.

The Genocide Exhibit was made possibly by the generosity of Nelson and Susan Hersh and their children, Michelle, Jessica, and Rebecca.
