Cultures United Conversation Series: January 25th
January 25, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
Cultures United is an initiative to promote conversation, collaboration, philanthropy, and unity.
As a special preview of the Americans and the Holocaust and Snapshots of Orange County in the 1940s: Spaces, Places, Faces exhibitions that will be shown at UCI Libraries, we are excited to present Lorelei Tanji, University Librarian, UCI Libraries and Krystal Tribbett, Curator of Orange County Regional History. This conversation will be moderated by Susan B. Parks.
Americans and the Holocaust focuses on the stories of individuals and groups of Americans who took action in response to Nazism. The exhibition will challenge visitors to consider the responsibilities and obstacles faced by individuals — from President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to ordinary Americans — who made difficult choices, sought to effect change, and, in a few cases, took significant risks to help victims of Nazism even though rescue never became a government priority.
Snapshots of Orange County in the 1940s: Spaces, Places, Faces explores the cultural, economic, and political landscape of Orange County from its inception through World War II. While multi-cultural groups were setting roots before the war, military installations brought soldiers from all over the country to Orange County, changing the demographics, cultural norms, and expectations. This exhibit shares the stories of the spaces, places, and faces that transformed rural Orange County into a thriving metropolis.
