Curating Your Family Story: Exhibition Opening and Community Event

Grand Opening and Community Event

FREE and open to the community

Celebrate the opening of the new exhibition and participate in a special family-fun community art project

Curating Your Family Story is a program co-created by the Breman Museum and Beit Hatfutsot, The Museum of the Jewish People in Israel, that connects personal family stories to the Jewish experience and unifies it into a work of art.

Bring your family on September 18th, from 2:00-4:00, to see the art works of the 2016 participants from Machanei Shai at Congregation Shearith Israel, and join in the collaborative art project under the leadership of artist Karin Mervis.

Curating Your Family Story is a new program created by the Breman Museum in partnership with Beit Hatfutsot based on the enduring My Family Story initiative. Now in its 21st year, My Family Story is a fun-filled, meaningful, personal, global and multi-generational Jewish heritage journey, where the exploration of one’s Jewish family roots, genealogy and traditions culminates in an artistic installation.

Free admission is made possible through a generous donation by Beit Hatfutsot and the Covenant Foundation.

Current 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.

  • Absence of Humanity : The Holocaust Years, 1933-1945

    This permanent exhibition presents the history of the Holocaust through artifacts and stories of Atlanta area Holocaust Survivors.

    Bearing Witness: Murray Lynn (Hungary)

    Murray Lynn was only 14 years old when he, his mother and three brothers were sent by cattle train to Auschwitz-Birkenau. His mother and brothers were murdered upon their arrival, but Murray survived despite unbearable conditions, and a death march that lasted many weeks. As an orphaned teenager, he was sent to England, Ireland and ultimately America, where he began a new life.
