Opening Day – Spots of Light:
To Be a Woman in the Holocaust

Deportation of Jews from Szydłowiec, Poland, to the Treblinka Death Camp, September 23, 1942

Presented by The Esther & Hyman Rapport Philanthropic Trust

Tuesday, March 19

11am – 5pm

Free with Museum admission

Spots of Light is the first exhibition to focus exclusively on Jewish women and their experiences in the Holocaust. Through these women’s initiative, creativity and courage, the exhibit demonstrates that human beings are strong enough, even in the most difficult of circumstances, to maintain those values which are the foundation of humanity: motherhood, friendship, faith and love. In this large-scale video installation, images move and change before the visitor’s eyes, giving historical material a new and contemporary feel and perspective. A production of the Museums Division, Yad Vashem.

On display through Sunday, June 9.
