Curating an Exhibition on Americans and the Holocaust
Sunday, January 22, 2017
Instructor: Daniel Greene
JRC member Daniel Greene is currently curating an exhibition on Americans and the Holocaust for the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC. The exhibition, opening in 2018, will examine what Americans knew about the persecution and murder of European Jews as it occurred, and it will prompt visitors to think about Americans’ responsibilities to refugees and persecuted peoples abroad. Greene will discuss the plans for the exhibition and lead a discussion about the issues the exhibition seeks to raise.
JRC members no charge; non-members $6
