Bulgarian Ambassador Elena Poptodorova Opens The Power of Civil Society Exhibit at W. W. Hagerty Library
On Wednesday, November 6th the Libraries unveiled a new exhibit hosted at W. W. Hagerty Library, The Power of Civil Society: The Fate of Jews in Bulgaria, which was introduced by the Bulgarian Ambassador Elena Poptodorova. Ambassador Poptodorova discussed the situation in Bulgaria during the years before and after the Holocaust and the brave decisions made by some of the citizens to rescue nearly 50,000 Jews.
Not long ago, a colleague asserted that exhibit cases are archaic and have no place in the modern. That challenged me to think about if it was true or if, like most things library-related, the purpose remains but means of presentation change.
We’re just bursting with pride over Drexel’s new partnership with the Academy of Natural Sciences.
