Traveling Exhibit: "Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race"

Saturday, April 11, 2015 (All day) to Sunday, June 7, 2015 (All day)

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s traveling exhibition Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race examines how the Nazi leadership, in collaboration with individuals in professions traditionally charged with healing and the public good, used science to help legitimize persecution, murder, and ultimately, genocide.

Deadly Medicine explores the Holocaust’s roots in then-contemporary scientific and pseudo-scientific thought,” explains exhibition curator Susan Bachrach. “At the same time, it touches on complex ethical issues we face today, such as how societies acquire and use scientific knowledge and how they balance the rights of the individual with the needs of the larger community.”

This exhibit is part of the annual partnership between the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education and the Grout Museum District is bring a traveling exhibit to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls area dealing with the Holocaust, genocide and human rights.

Artist Series: Emily Bear

Artist Series: Emily Bear

Saturday, April 18, 2015 - 3:00 pm

A native of Rockford, Illinois, Emily Bear broke into the national spotlight at age six, when she appeared on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” appearing four more times all within a span of two years. She made her Carnegie Hall debut at age nine and performed at the Hollywood Bowl at age 10. Needless to say, this pianist and composer is one of the most astonishing musical talents of our time. Now, age 13 and under the mentorship of Quincy Jones, she brings us her diverse talent. Along with a jazz trio, she seamlessly moves from classical music to jazz. You’ll want to be able to say you saw her when.

Curtain Talk begins at 2:15 p.m.

Funny...As a Crutch?

Funny...As a Crutch?

Saturday, April 18, 2015 - 7:30 pm

Laughter is often a nervous reaction to subjects our society finds taboo. We laugh at inappropriate times, make self-deprecating jokes about our human frailties and hide behind our laughter. Through the performance of poetry, personal narrative and drama (and relying on a bit of humor), "Funny.....as a Crutch?" challenges audiences to rethink the role humor plays in revealing (or masking) our attitudes toward our own mental and physical (dis)abilities.
