EXHIBIT:  "WITNESS TO THE HOLOCAUST:  WWII VETERAN ALEXANDER SCOTT III AT BUCHENWALD"

Scott was a photographer with the 318th Airbase Squadron and the 183rd Engineer Combat Battalion. During his assignment in Germany, he became one of the first Allied soldiers to enter Buchenwald, a Nazi concentration camp, to liberate prisoners of the Holocaust. He was also a tireless civil rights activist so the exhibit also includes panels drawing parallel between the Jim Crow Laws and the Nuremberg Race Laws of 1935-1945 implemented in Germany and Nazi-controlled areas of Europe.

Cost:  FREE
