The Commission is bringing the exhibit “In Her Father’s Eyes: A Slovak Childhood in the Shadow of the Holocaust” to Sandy Springs. The exhibit will be on display at Anne Frank in the World until March 3, 2013. The exhibit offers a rare glimpse into the life of a young Czechoslovakian girl on the eve of the“Final Solution," the Nazi plan to rid Europe of Jews. Kitty Weichherz was 13-years-old when she and her parents were put to death at the Sobibór killing center in Poland.
