A new travelling exhibition from the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center
When you’ve lost everything, a single object can take on extraordinary meaning
This exhibit reflects upon the individual stories of 59 Survivors of the Holocaust and genocides and conflicts including Armenia, Bosnia, Cambodia, Iraq and Syria, Rwanda, and South Sudan, told through objects, photographs and personal reflections. Created by the Illinois Holocaust Museum and award-winning photographer Jim Lommasson, the exhibition includes large-format photographic prints of precious objects from a Survivor, on which the Survivor or their family member(s) reflect on the objects’ meaning directly on the print.
The exhibit will open in Spring of 2022
