Collin College Hosts Holocaust Remembrance Exhibition

March 29, 2017 — Collin College’s Spring Creek Campus Library will host a pair of photo exhibitions from March 29-April 30 in honor of Holocaust remembrance.

The exhibitions are a production of the Museums Division, Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center. The exhibitions include reproductions of two of Yad Vashem’s photo collections, “SHOAH: How Was It Humanly Possible?” and “AUSCHWITZ – A PLACE ON EARTH: The Auschwitz Album.”

“SHOAH: How Was It Humanly Possible” deals with major historical aspects of the Holocaust, beginning with Jewish life in pre-Holocaust Europe and ending with the liberation of Nazi concentration and extermination camps across the continent, as well as the remarkable return to life of the survivors. “AUSCHWITZ - A PLACE ON EARTH: The Auschwitz Album” depicts the only known visual documentation of the arrival of a transport of Jews to Auschwitz-Birkenau. You can learn more about the collections at www.yadvashem.org/yv/en/exhibitions/ready2print/index.asp#/home.

The exhibitions are free and open to the public. They will be held in Spring Creek Campus Library, 4000 Jupiter Road in Plano.
