There's an important --- and powerful -- lesson on display at a museum in Easton.

Officials at the Sigel Museum on Sunday hosted an opening reception for the Legacy Exhibit, which features the history of the Holocaust.

The goal is to help students grasp the full meaning of the Holocaust, organizers said.

The exhibit has authentic American and Nazi uniforms and dramatic photos of concentration camps.

It will be at museum until the end of the month.
