Exhibitions

  • Vedem Underground: The Secret Magazine of Terezin : Vedem Underground

    The magazine was one of the longest-running underground publication to be regularly produced by Nazi prisoners. From 1942-1944, VEDEM’s teenage authors documented their harrowing existence with defiance, humor, heartbreak, and poignancy, and created an enduring example of social activism through artistic expression. Using graphics, drawings, paintings, prose, and poetry, we hear the voices of some of the era’s youngest resistance fighters who refused to give up their identity, humanity, and fighting spirit.

  • Enduring Tension : (En)countering Antisemitism in Every Age

    Enduring Tension, (En)countering Antisemitism in Every Age allows visitors to briefly examine the reach and impact of Antisemitism throughout the ages. This exhibition is in collaboration with Kennesaw State University’s Museum of History and Holocaust Education.
