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.

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.

Funny...As a Crutch?

Funny...As a Crutch?

Friday, April 17, 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.
