“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
On Monday 23 June Year 11 will visit La Trobe University Wodonga to attend the Courage to Care exhibition.
The underlying message from the exhibition is that ordinary people are capable of extraordinary acts, and that each person can make a difference by choosing not to be a bystander. Using the Holocaust as an extreme example of how far racism and discrimination can go if not stopped, the program incorporates film footage, first person testimony, texts, objects, memorabilia and interactive media to tell stories of survivors and their rescuers, those men and women who risked their own lives to save others during World War II.
The exhibition encourages participants to enquire and critically reflect on their personal values as they become more aware of what constitutes bullying, racism and intolerance, and the impact of being a bystander.
