What is an upstander?
The Upstander Awards Party is part of the Cincy Upstander Project, which aims to inspire our community to become upstanders through a city-wide art campaign, monthly programs, museum tours, giveaways, and training opportunities. Upstanders are individuals who stand up for others and their rights. They fight against injustice and unfairness, and they use their character strengths to inspire action and become the best of humanity today.
What should I know about the Holocaust & Humanity Center?
Union Terminal is home to the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center – an award-winning museum and nonprofit that examines the Holocaust through its local connection. Union Terminal is the site where numerous Holocaust survivors arrived by train to rebuild their lives in Cincinnati. Using innovative storytelling, interactive experiences, and genuine artifacts, visitors witness the strength and courage of the human spirit set against the backdrop of one of the darkest chapters in human history. The museum incorporates media, artifacts, art, and interactive exhibitions to share this history and its lessons. It also includes the Humanity Gallery where visitors explore moments, meeting individuals who activated their character strengths to become upstanders and bring change to our community and world. HHC is one of eight museums in the world to add a virtual intelligence exhibit called Dimensions in Testimony. Using specialized recording and display technologies and next-generation natural language processing, Dimensions in Testimony allows visitors to ask two-dimensional displays of Holocaust survivors questions and receive responses in real time.
Visit the museum, celebrate the changemakers in our community, and embrace HHC’s mission of ensuring the lessons of the Holocaust inspire action today. Purchase your tickets today to the Upstander Awards Party on June 2 at 6 p.m.!
