Holocaust Boxcar Exhibit held Saturday May 21, at Fagen Fighters WWII Museum

Saturday May 21, Fagen Fighters WWII Museum will present the Holocaust Boxcar Exhibit, its most recent addition to its historical aviation facility. A program to announce the permanent exhibit will begin at 11 a.m.

Special guest speakers at the event include Steve Hunegs, Executive Director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, and Judy Baron, Holocaust Survivor. It will be a rare opportunity to hear first hand experience of the historic occurrence. In addition, German Historian Dr. Joachim "Yogi" Reppmann will participate in the presentation.

In addition to the Boxcar Exhibit is the Transfer of Memory touring exhibition, on loan until early June, from the Jewish Community Relations Council. The Transfer of Memory exhibit consists of portraits of people from Minnesota who survived the Holocaust. It will be seen for the first time at the museum Saturday.

Weather permitting, Fagen Fighters will fly their warbirds in honor of the day's event, however, the event is meant to showcase the Holocaust Boxcar exhibit and the Transfer of Memory exhibit. The event is not an airshow.
