Holocaust Exhibit at SCSU Through April

Southern Connecticut State University will host an exhibit on the Holocaust during the month of April on the main floor of Buley Library. One part of the exhibit will highlight children’s drawings, poetry and stories from the Terezin Concentration Camp. A sculpture (at left) by local artist Zvi Goldman will be featured as part of the exhibit. In the artist’s words, “The rebirth of the Jews followed the Holocaust. Despite the horrific losses, a new generation emerged that remembered the past and created a new future. Recovery is in our historical genes.” The public is invited to the opening ceremony/ reception April 5, 3-4:30 p.m. The exhibit is sponsored by the Judaic Studies Program and curated by Professor David Pettigrew, (at left, inset) Miriam Glenn, a university student, and Jamie Aschenbach, Head of Access Services Division for the library. For more information, contact Dr. David Levine (levined1@southernct.edu) or Dr. Deborah Weiss (weissd1@southernct.edu), co-Directors of the Judaic Studies Program.
