GeorgeBike2March 8 - May 24 | At the Henry and Sandra Friedman Holocaust Center for Humanity | Plan Your Visit

More than three generations of Americans have grown up reading the stories of an irrepressible little brown monkey known in this country as “Curious George.” But few people know about the incredible journey made by his creators, Margret and H. A. Rey, to escape the Nazi invasion of Paris at the start of World War II.

Created by artist Allen Drummond from the Houghton Mifflin book by Louise Borden (“The Journey that Saved Curious George”), the watercolor paintings depict the flight of Curious George’s creators - Margret and H. A. Rey - from Nazi Europe.

This exhibit is a fantastic way to connect a familiar and beloved literary character to lessons of history, and the dangers of religious persecution.
