Current Exhibit

Please join us for the OPENING RECEPTION for Scroll of Remembrance on Sunday October 25 at 2:00 PM.

We are pleased to welcome the works of Holocaust Survivor Dr. Miriam Brysk with her exhibit,The Scroll of Remembrance. Dr. Brysk is an artist, writer and retired professor living in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Dr. Brysk has created a unique process for creating her art, using digitally altered and blended photographs of lost people and places, layered with added details that evoke the humanity lost to hate.

Over the last decade the Holocaust Center has hosted her other two major exhibits, In a Confined Silence and Children of the Holocaust, both focused on the plight of individual Jews during the Holocaust. In this recently completed third exhibit, Scroll of Remembrance, her focus shifted from lost individuals to the destruction of entire Jewish communities. Her goal was to create panels to represent a cross-section of an entire Jewish world and its fate during the Holocaust. Panels about communities of Warsaw, Lodz, and Kovno; images of the terrifying camps of Belzec, Auschwitz, and Mauthausen; and the history of Einsatzgruppen and the heroism of Jewish Partisans all stand as testament to our need to remember.

Dr. Brysk refers to her new exhibit as the most powerful she has created to date, a visual narrative of the lives and communities lost to cruel hatred. She says that the work was inspired by the Megillat HaShoah: The Holocaust Scrolls, a powerful liturgical text that was created in 2003 to be read during observances of Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah).

No admission is charged, and reservations are not required.
