Holocaust Museum exhibit to stop at Ekstrom Library


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. — “Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals: 1933-1945,” a traveling exhibit from the U.S. Holocaust Museum, will be at the University of Louisville’s Ekstrom Library Sept. 19-Nov. 28.

    The exhibit includes reproductions of some 250 historic photographs and documents that examine the rationale, means and impact of a lesser-known aspect of the Holocaust — the Nazi regime’s attempt to eradicate homosexuality.

    Leaders from Louisville’s Jewish and LGBT communities have been invited to speak at the opening reception, Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m. It will be in the first-floor silent study room of Ekstrom Library.

    Sponsors also have planned a series of related programming to complement the exhibit. Highlights — all of which take place at 7 p.m. in Chao Auditorium, Ekstrom Library — are:
