A national traveling exhibit about the Holocaust will be on exhibit through March 4 at Cal State Fullerton. The exhibit opening will be held at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 19.

"Courage to Remember: The Holocaust 1933-1945," sponsored by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, Foundation for America and SNCF, France's national state-owned railway company, will be shown in the Salz-Pollak Room of the Pollak Library.

The exhibit is made up of 40-panels of nearly 200 photographs covering four themes: Nazi Germany, 1933-1938; Moving Toward the 'Final Solution,' 1939-1941; Annihilation in Nazi-Occupied Europe, 1941-1945; and Liberation-Building New Lives.

The Feb. 19 exhibit opening will include a tribute to the late Leon Leyson, the youngest person on Schindler's List and a long-time Fullerton resident. His widow, Lis, is a member of the Patrons of the Library board.
