Exhibitions

  • 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.

  • Seeking Justice : The Leo Frank Case Revisited

    Even after 100 years the events surrounding the murder of Mary Phagan and the trial and lynching of Leo Frank remain both disturbing and morbidly fascinating. Seeking Justice allows visitors to look at the momentous and tragic events of the years 1913-1915 through the lens of the societal and political tensions that existed in Atlanta at that time. The full exhibition provides an immersive experience for visitors, while an artifact only display for smaller spaces conveys this story's significance in a more condensed manner.
