Inescapable: The Life and Legacy of Harry Houdini

April 14, 2019 - August 11, 2019

Harry Houdini wasn’t born. He was invented. Inescapable explores the creation of Houdini by the poor Jewish immigrant, Ehrich Weiss, with a look at the technologies, marketing prowess, and entertainment trends that allowed a superstar to emerge. Inescapable: The Life and Legacy of Harry Houdini was created by the Jewish Museum of Maryland.
