The next exhibit that is part of the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center Fall 2018-2019 Cultural Season is titled Heroes of Warsaw, which will be on display from Sept. 1-Dec. 28, 2018.

Using the illustrations of Bill Farnsworth, Heroes of Warsaw highlights the courage and bravery of Irena Sendler and Janusz Korczak. This is the first time that all of his illustrations will be presented-only half of this collection has been on display before. Using the children's books A Hero and the Holocaust: The Story of Janusz Korczak and His Children and Irena Sendler and the Children of the Warsaw Ghetto this exhibit highlights the impact these heroes had on the children in the Warsaw Ghetto.

"My approach was to be brutally honest yet with a window of hope. The heroes like Korczak, and Sendler showed the world that during tragic times a few had the courage to rise above and do what's right", stated Bill Farnsworth.

A reception for this exhibit will be held on Sept. 16 at 2 p.m. This program will serve as an opening reception for the Heroes of Warsaw exhibition and will include a talk from illustrator Bill Farnsworth about his work and inspiration.

"My approach was to be brutally honest yet with a window of hope. The heroes like Korczak, and Sendler showed the world that during tragic times a few had the courage to rise above and do what's right", stated Bill Farnsworth.

Dates, times, and locations are subject to change. Please consult The Holocasut Center's website, holocaustedu.org, for the most up-to-date information.
