Commemorating the November pogroms of 1938 worldwide, the United Nations and the Museum Center for Persecuted Arts are launching the multilingual online exhibition “Seven Places in Germany” (seven-places.org) in this 75th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust and the Second World War, and the founding of the United Nations on 24 October 2020.
Responsible for the exhibition is the Museum Center for Persecuted Arts with the assistance of the Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme as a multimedia educational resource source in remembrance of, and to educate about, the 1938 November Pogrom.
The Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme was established by the United Nations pursuant to UN General Assembly resolution 60/7 of 1 November 2005, which urged the UN Member States to develop educational programs with lessons about the Holocaust and requested the UN Secretary-General to establish a Holocaust outreach porgramme and measures to mobilize civil society for Holocaust remembrance and education so as to help prevent future acts of genocide.
