Shoah Photo Exhibit

This entry was posted on Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

Yom HaShoah, literally, the day of the whirlwind, is observed by Jews worldwide as a day of mourning for the six million men, women, and children who, between 1938 and 1945, were butchered by the Nazis for only one reason—because they were Jews.

Dr. Joseph Rubin, photo archivist of the Jewish Heritage Collection, has prepared a moving exhibition of restored photographs featuring Charlestonians and residents of South Carolina who knew the horror of the Holocaust first-hand.

The photo exhibit is currently on display in Special Collections, on the third floor of the Addlestone Library. To view a related slide presentation, click here:
