MAITLAND, Fla. — The Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center of Florida announced the grand opening of “a first-of-its-kind exhibit that examines the indelible link between antisemitism and racism.”
The exhibit, as told by award-winning blues musician Daryl Davis, examines white supremacy from its beginnings in the trans-Atlantic slave trade and its evolution of persecution of different groups around the world.
Davis, who has dedicated his life to fighting white supremacy, says the exhibit helps refute the misconception that white supremacists are only anti-Black, and his life experience shows that combating white supremacy is necessary to fighting antisemitism.
Shelley Lauten, CEO of the Holocaust Center, said they were honored to host the exhibit.
“Fighting white supremacy wherever it exists is a key lesson of the Holocaust, and having this incredible experience at our museum is a poignant reminder,” Lauten said.
The exhibit runs through May 2022.
