Bismarck Veterans Memorial Public Library presents Families Around the World

The Bismarck Veteran Memorial Public Library’s 3rd annual Families around the World event embraced the diversity in our community and celebrated the unique cultures we share. The evening hosted lively music and dancing presentations, guest exhibitors at information tables, hands-on activities and craft projects, and tasty food samples from local purveyors. The Library presented Families around the World in partnership with Global Neighbors, Bismarck Public Schools, and the Bismarck Library Foundation, Inc.

Americans and the Holocaust traveling exhibition at Bismarck Library

Bismarck Veterans Memorial Public Library was one of 50 U.S. libraries selected to host Americans and the Holocaust, a traveling exhibition from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum that examines the motives, pressures, and fears that shaped Americans’ responses to Nazism, war, and genocide in Europe during the 1930s and 1940s. The touring library exhibition — based on the special exhibition of the same name at the Museum in Washington, D.C. — will travel to U.S. libraries from 2022 to 2024.

We are honored to be selected from a pool of more than 250 applicants and chosen as the only library in North Dakota to host Americans and the Holocaust,” said Library Director Christine Kujawa. “We encourage citizens to experience this powerful exhibit. We are eager to connect with community partners to offer informative programs, as well. The exhibit will challenge people not only to ask ‘what would I have done?’ but also, ‘what will I do?’” Americans and the Holocaust was on display at the Library along with a series of related special events through May 3, 2022.
