PORT ST. LUCIE -- The City of Port St. Lucie is honored to host "The Courage to Remember," a traveling Holocaust exhibit produced by the Simon Wiesenthal Center's Museum of Tolerance, on display at the Civic Center Art Gallery in October.

There will be a special reception on opening night, Thursday, Oct. 3, beginning at 6 p.m. It will be open to the public and will include speakers who will talk of the important lessons learned from the Holocaust and its relevance in the world today.

The exhibit includes 200 photos offering unique insight into the Holocaust and will remain on display through Sunday, Oct. 27. Because of the graphic nature of some of the material, the Wiesenthal Center does not recommend the display for children under 12 and encourages adult guidance for older children.

The exhibit is intended to serve as a reminder of the Holocaust, to honor its victims and to encourage Americans to be vigilant about respecting diversity.

All residents are encouraged to attend, to bring family and friends, and to use the occasion to unite against the injustice of discrimination and intolerance.

For more information, call (772) 873-6329.
