SAPL Learn and Remember program focuses on censorship during the Holocaust this year
For 11 years, the San Antonio Public Library has presented a series titled “The Holocaust Learn and Remember.” This year the program focuses on censorship and how the Nazi regime controlled information in order to suppress Jewish people and other persecuted groups. The timeliness of this theme is a reminder of current censorship efforts across the state. Texas currently leads the nation with the most banned books in school districts and libraries.
What exhibits are currently on display? How can the public view them? What speakers and research went into creating this year’s theme on censorship?
- Ramiro S. Salazar, director of the San Antonio Public Library
- Morgan Yoshimura, San Antonio Public Library coordinator of services to adults
- Leslie Davis Met, director of the Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio
