STORIES OF SURVIVAL: ART AS RESISTANCE
Wednesday, November 17, 2016
7:00 p.m. in Mayerson Hall at HUC-JIR
Holocaust survivors Michael Kraus and Frank Grunwald survived Theresienstadt, Auschwitz and Mauthausen concentration camps. In fact, they survived it together. Both men expressed their experience through art; Kraus through sketches and writing and Grunwald through drawings and film. Join The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education, in partnership with the Skirball Museum of HUC-JIR, as we reunite Michael and Frank to discuss how art was used as a tool for resistance before, during and after the Holocaust. 12 Nazi Concentration Camps: Photographs by James Friedman will be open for viewing before and after the program.
The other program that needs to be update is our photo exhibit on November 3rd. What’s weird is that I thought you told me you already did this. Not sure if you submitted the changes but they were never updated on the calendar if I misunderstood you. Either way, here’s the blurb for that one just in case you need it again.
The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education presents Through Their Lens: Photo Reflections on the Holocaust. This exhibition will feature photographs submitted by students, teachers and the general community who have visited sites of the Holocaust or atrocities in Europe. The exhibition will explore the topic of secondary witnesses and their contributions to Holocaust education and remembrance.
