“I think it honestly shows how brave people are not to go with the main stream ways and just basically show their courage and be daring and go against the views of the norm,” she said.

While the focus of the program was on the Holocaust, student Lucas Munday pointed out more recent similar events.

“There’s the Darfur genocide, the Bosnia and Cambodian genocides and Rwanda genocide,” Munday said.

Josh Hall, student body council president at St. Paul Catholic School in New Bern, saw the exhibit and said he now has a greater understanding of the Holocaust.

“I’ve been interested since I was very little in stuff like this because if history isn’t remembered it will repeat itself,” he said. “I just find these things to be very important. It’s never too early to learn about these things because these are some of the most important things in the world and history itself.”
