Local Faces of Resilience: Lessons from the Holocaust for today

Local Faces of Resilience: Lessons from the Holocaust for today will be displayed at the Jewish Community Center from September 26-November 26. This photography exhibition honors 16 local Holocaust survivors, some of whom have since passed after the photograph was taken.  

To maximize this experience for your students, we would like to offer the opportunity for school groups to go through the exhibit and then sit for a workshop titled, “Context of the Holocaust.” The workshop, paired with the exhibit, will offer a unique opportunity to learn Holocaust history while making individual connections with local survivor stories.  

This opportunity will be offered starting Monday, October 11 and run through Wednesday, November 24. The program will be offered select Sundays to accommodate religious school groups.  

If you are interested in scheduling this program, please contact Sam Goldberg at with your class size and preferred date and time.
