St. Johns Hosts Cattle Car Exhibit

St. Johns Hosts Cattle Car Exhibit
Anti-semitic incidents in the United States are up more than 337% since the Hamas attack on Israel in October 2023, according to the Anti-Defamation League, a leading global anti-hate group. This is why St. Johns Country Day School was proud to partner with two other First Coast independent schools—Bishop Kenny High School and Grace Episcopal Day School—to bring to campus a timely and important exhibit on the Holocaust, The Cattle Car Exhibit: Stepping In and Out of Darkness. The exhibit is a replica of the transportation used to herd victims of the Nazi regime to concentration camps across Europe. 

The Cattle Car was on campus on Monday, March 25. St. Johns students in Grades 8-12 visited the exhibit with their history classes. Students from Bishop Kenny and Grace Episcopal were bused to St. Johns. 

“It is clear that now more than ever we must teach the lessons of the Holocaust to ensure its legacy is not forgotten,” said History and Social Sciences Chair Josh Stern.

Upon entering the car, students were immersed in a 360 degree multimedia experience.
