We are excited to announce that the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance will be at the DFW Archives Bazaar. Meet archivist Felicia Williamson and her team to learn about the valuable treasures that document a tragic period in history. Learn how Jewish residents of Dallas fought to survive and are fighting today to educate others in the need for tolerance and human dignity.
To learn a little bit more, we posed a couple of questions to Felicia Williamson, Archivist and Dr. Sara Abosch, Director of Education at the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance about the DFW Archives Bazaar and the importance of archives.
What do you hope people get from the DFW Archives Bazaar?
I hope that people will come to the Bazaar and leave with a greater understanding of the rich archival and cultural heritage available in North Texas. I want people to leave knowing how archives can impact them.
Why are archives important to the Dallas Holocaust Museum?
Archives and archivists provide the tools we need to fight Holocaust denial. They help us to illuminate an incredibly dark time in human history, so that it remains in our conscience and in our present. Archival efforts help us to ensure that “never again” will become a reality in our society.
-Dr. Sara Abosch
