Visit this groundbreaking exhibition to explore what survivors of the Holocaust, other genocides, and civil war have brought with them on their journeys to America. The Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum's inaugural special exhibition--Stories of Survival: Object. Image. Memory. showcases over 60 personal items brought to the U.S. by Survivors of the Holocaust and refugees from Armenia, Bosnia, Cambodia, Iraq, Rwanda, South Sudan, and Syria.
This landmark exhibition, originally created by the Illinois Holocaust Museum, features stunning prints by award-winning photographer Jim Lommasson who captured these priceless treasures donated by genocide and civil war survivors. The story and meaning of each item is printed on the photograph itself in the survivor's own handwriting, pulling viewers into the gripping stories of real people impacted by war, trauma, and displacement.
Stories of Survival: Object. Image. Memory. is a project of the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center and photographer Jim Lommasson.
