Georgia's Response to the Holocaust

"Georgia's Response to the Holocaust" is an exhibit series that examines how individuals and organizations in Georgia responded during the Holocaust. There are two installments in this series:
  • A Home for Refugees - tells the stories of seven survivors who left Europe after Hitler’s rise to power and began new lives in Georgia. 
  • Witnesses to Liberation - profiles six men who served the United States during World War II and witnessed the liberation of Nazi camps between January and April of 1945

The “Witness to the Holocaust” exhibit is a photographic essay of one of Atlanta's leading African-American citizens, William Alexander “W.A.” Scott III, who witnessed the liberation of the Buchenwald concentration camp through the lense of him camera. The exhibit also draws parallels between the Jim Crow Laws and the 1880’s-1960’s implemented in the United States and the Nuremberg Race Laws of 1935-1945 implemented in Germany and Nazi-controlled areas of Europe.
