July 2020

On January 27, 2020–on the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau—a special exhibit “Seeing Auschwitz” premiered at the United Nations. I was lucky enough to be with Paul Salmons, its chief curator, as he walked a small group through his very moving exhibit. Now his tour can be shared with you. I was very surprised—and also very honored—to see photos from our “Eyes from the Ashes” collection included in this small but important “Seeing Auschwitz”. **

I think you’ll be interested in hearing my esteemed colleague’s focus on the humanity of the people, who became casualties of the Nazi regime.

**Note: This small exhibit is quite different than the huge (and astounding) enormous exhibit, currently mounted at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, titled “Auschwitz—Not Long Ago, Not Far Away”. Although this museum is currently closed and the extended run was due to close this August (because of the coronavirus), it has (thankfully) been extended once again. It will now be available for viewing until December 31, 2020.
