Americans and the Holocaust

The City Tech Library was one out of 50 libraries in the country to be selected by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and American Libraries Association to host Americans and the Holocaust, a traveling exhibition. The exhibition examines how Americans reacted to Nazism, war, refugees, and genocide before, during, and after the Second World War.

The exhibit opens November 28 and closes December 17, 2023. It is free and open to the public by appointment.

Exhibit Location

The exhibit is on the City Tech campus in downtown Brooklyn, in the Academic Complex.

Visitors will enter at the City Tech Community Service Center, 287 Jay Street, and go through a security check in.
