We are pleased to announce the opening of an exhibition in partnership with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. From September 15 through October 30, students will interact with panels on Holocaust history, as well as information on other genocides, in the campus library.
This initiative is part PolyU’s annual Read@ event series, which this year centers on John Boyne’s The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. On October 7 students heard from Holocaust survivor Silvain Gilbert. On October 13 and 20, they will watch the film based on Boyne’s book and partake in a post-screening discussion on the film.

We are delighted that this was featured in the Young South China Morning Post, since this is a very important target group for our educational mission.
This exhibition has also been covered by a column in the Hong Kong Ecomomic Journal, Ming Pao, Le Petit Journal, The House News and Xinhua Website as well as featured as ‘pick of the day’ in the SCMP listings and 24 hours. There was a prominent listing in the now closed HK Magazine.
Our exhibition in Central Hong Kong has created a lot of interest amongst the press and general public. Many people are stopping to read the exhibition panels, look at the wonderful student art and take a moment to reflect on the horrors of racism and intolerance that culminated in the Holocaust.
