“HER STORY MUST BE TOLD: WOMEN’S VOICES FROM THE HOLOCAUST”
BurlCo Library Hosts Traveling Exhibit through March 31

The Burlington County Library System is proud to present “Her Story Must be Told: Women’s Voices from the Holocaust,” a traveling panel exhibition now on display at the County Library in Westampton.

The exhibit from The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education uniquely presents the memories, photos, and stories of 15 Jewish women who survived the Holocaust. The women are from a dozen countries, reflecting different survivor experiences and offering viewers an appreciation for their unique methods of survival: fighting in the resistance; living in hiding or with false identity; and enduring concentration camps. Collectively, these stories of sisters, daughters, mothers, wives and friends celebrate women’s strength and valor.

The 15 panels can be found on display in the County Library’s new Exhibit Room. Part of the main facility’s recent expansion and renovation project, the new exhibit space offers a fresh way to share stories about history, science and culture. Patrons will find a variety of interesting exhibits on display throughout the year.
The Burlington County Library is located at 5 Pioneer Boulevard off Woodlane Road in Westampton. For more information, call (609) 267-9660.
