From the Children… Holocaust Exhibit

From the Children, About the Children, For the Children: Art and Writing of the Holocaust is a thought provoking exhibit showing creative expressions from youth trying to survive the Holocaust. The materials included in these panels were provided with permission from Israel’s Beit Theresienstadt Martyrs’ Remembrance Association and the Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education.

This exhibit showcases 16 panels of artwork, poetry and exerpts from an underground student newspaper created by Jewish youth at the Terezin ghetto in Czechoslovakia. Feelings of isolation, fear, hunger, and humiliation are expressed through vivid imagery and words, helping today’s students connect with their counterparts from that time and place.

The From the Children exhibit also includes a multi-lesson study guide, educational aids, and other media designed for grades 6-12. The exhibit is available for rent to schools, museums, houses of worship, and other educational institutions.

The True Wartime Escape: Margaret and H.A. Rey’s Journey from France

More than three generations of Americans have grown up reading the stories of an irrepressible little brown monkey known in this country as “Curious George.” But few people know about the incredible journey made by his creators, Margret and H. A. Rey, to escape the Nazi invasion of Paris at the start of World War II.

The exhibit of 37 panels contains a collection of first edition giclee prints and explanatory panels that help tell this compelling story.  Created by artist Allen Drummond from the Houghton Mifflin book by Louise Borden, “The Journey that Saved Curious George,” the water color paintings depict the plight of Curious George’s creators - Margret and H. A. Rey - while fleeing Nazi Europe. 

“Wartime Escape” is a fantastic way to connect a familiar and beloved literary character to lessons of history, and the dangers of religious persecution.

Additional images and exhibit information are available upon request


Portraits of Survival Gallery

“Portraits of Survival” is a non-travelling Holocaust exhibit, featuring a black and white photo gallery of individuals from Nebraska’s Holocaust survivor and military liberator community. It was created in conjunction with the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of Kristallnacht.

As a result of the talent and sensitivity of photographer David Radler, viewers feel as though they are looking into the essence of each of the beloved members of our local community.

The exhibit is on display in the Pennie Z. Davis Gallery for Holocaust Education, at the Jewish Community Center in Omaha - 333 South 132nd Street, Omaha, NE 68154.
