Library – Historical Society partnering in VLS

VLS logo imageFergus Falls Public Library in the Viking Library System (VLS) teamed up with the Otter Tail County Historical Society to bring the exhibit Transfer of Memory to the area. The touring exhibition includes portraits and stories of Minnesota Holocaust survivors. Private and public funds were raised to bring the exhibition to the museum, while Legacy funds sponsored a standing-room-only opening night presentation by creators of the exhibit and a second generation Holocaust survivor; a Coffee Klatch gathering at the museum with the latter speaker; a book discussion of Jack and Rochelle: A Holocaust Story of Love and Resistance at the library; and a Holocaust survivor documentary film screening at the library. (Note: The exhibit is available from the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas.)
