Past Exhibition: The Kindertransport Journey: From memory to history

The regional commemoration of Holocaust Memorial Day is organised each year by the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister in co-operation with representatives of the Belfast Jewish Community and other interested groups. In association with the commemoration,  the exhibition, The Kindertransport Journey... Memory into History will be on display at the Mid-Antrim Museum at The Braid until Saturday 14th February 2009.

An annual Holocaust Memorial Day was initiated nine years ago to ensure that the crimes committed against humanity during the Holocaust are never forgotten, particularly by younger generations. Holocaust Memorial Day promotes remembrance of all victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution. It is also intended to make people think about the world around them, their own behaviour and that of others, why the Holocaust is relevant to their lives today and how more recent atrocities raise similar issues.

The regional commemoration of Holocaust Memorial Day is organised each year by the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister in co-operation with representatives of the Belfast Jewish Community and other interested groups. In association with the commemoration,  the exhibition, The Kindertransport Journey: Memory into History will be on display at the Mid-Antrim Museum at The Braid for several weeks from Monday ,19 January.

Sharing the memories and experiences of those who lived through the Holocaust years with new generations is vital to ensure that the lessons of history are not forgotten and we are encouraging schools in the area to visit the exhibition and perhaps use the material relating to the Holocaust in their studies. If your school would like to view the Exhibition please contact  the Museum on 028 2565 7161 to make the necessary arrangements .
