Illini Hillel, Cohen Center for Jewish Life
This prominent exhibition comprised of artwork by 12 survivors of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp who documented their experiences during the Holocaust. It features 60 pieces of art is on loan from the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum in Poland. It is our honor to premier this exhibition in the U.S.
“By observing life in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp through the memory of its inmates, you will have the opportunity to increase knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust and learn about the daily struggle for survival by the camp’s prisoners,” says Robert Lehmann, co-chair of the CUJF’s Holocaust Education Committee.
Join a docent-led tour of this rare exhibit to learn more about each artist. Examine the artworks in detail to better understand life in the concentration camp and the experiences of individuals who faced forced labor and constant dehumanization.
This exhibit is curated by the Holocaust Education Center of CUJF
