January 9 – February 27, 2013
From the terrible darkness of the Holocaust to successful lives in Alabama, these Holocaust survivors embraced and enriched their new homes. These are bold, thought-provoking, heartwarming paintings and photographs accompanied by educational narratives that tell the stories shared by the survivors.
The Birmingham Holocaust Education Center says, “Through the stories of these Alabama Holocaust survivors, we hope to impart this history, as well as a richer understanding of its impact on these individuals and their families.”
The Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center, Troy University and the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center present Darkness into Life: Alabama Holocaust Survivors through Photography and Art, an exhibit featuring the stories of 20 Alabama Holocaust Survivors teaching the history of the Holocaust and its impact on these individuals and families. This exhibit will be on display in the Johnson Center for the Arts from January 9 until February 27.
