As a partner with The Kentucky Center for the Arts, the Bowling Green High School Joseph Tinius LEAD Academy proudly invites the community to the conclusion of the Bearing Witness Project. On March 7, 2017, students will honor the victims, celebrate the survivors, and express our commitment to "Never Again!" Never again will we be silent; never again will we be bystanders. Whether it is schoolhouse bullying or crimes against humanity, we have learned the power of voice and the devastation of silence.
First, the event will honor the victims through the artwork of VAMPY students, who have over the years and under the leadership of Ron Skillern, produced a collection of 20+ murals depicting the events of the Holocaust. Bowling Green's current students have also created art pieces that reflect the compassion for those that lost their lives.
There will also be a celebration for those who survived, not only through the arts but by hosting Holocaust Survivor and author, Fred Gross. Mr. Gross will share his story of survival in a time where, so very few were able to escape.
This Night to Remember is a way of making a commitment to neighbors, to not be silent. Lest we forget.
