Courage to Care aims to inform and educate Australians of the dangers of prejudice and discrimination. It is an exhibition that educates visitors towards an understanding of the roles of victims, perpetrators and bystanders by exposing them to survivors of the Holocaust and their rescuers.
Visitors have the extraordinary opportunity to meet and tour the exhibition with living historians who risked their lives to save others during the Second World War.
This year Courage to Care has awarded its Local Hero award to The Footpath Library Founder, Sarah Garnett, as a living example of how one person can make a difference by simply extending a caring hand.
The Courage to Care exhibition is on at Manly Art Gallery until 21 April.
