Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away attracted more than 200,000 visitors during its 10 month run in Simi Valley. To accommodate the crowds, the Library expanded its operating hours, and extended the closing date of the exhibition.
It featured hundreds of artifacts from Auschwitz. The exhibition had added importance because of the recent rise in antisemitism around the world. Hundreds of school groups toured the exhibition. And, there were a number of special events related to the exhibition, like talks by Holocaust survivors.
It finally closed on January 28.
