Searching for humanity exhibit

The Searching for Humanity: Veterans, Victims and Survivors of World War II exhibit tells a powerful story about the Holocaust and those who rescued survivors from concentration camps. Told via photographs, memorabilia and testimony of Nebraska Holocaust survivors and servicemen - the exhibit grapples with the search for humanity during and after the Holocaust.
