Georgia's Response to the Holocaust: Survivors and Liberators
An 18-panel traveling exhibit that promotes understanding of the Holocaust through the unique stories of courage and survival of 16 Georgians –12 Holocaust survivors and 4 American soldiers/liberators -- who experienced the history from diverse backgrounds and regions of Europe.
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.
This exhibition explores the powerful history of German fashion from its international impact to its destruction by the Nazi regime. It honors the legacy of the Jewish Germans who contributed to its rise and commemorates the great cultural and economic loss resulting from its demise.
