View Full schedule
The exhibit “Darfur: Photojournalists Respond,” based on the book “Darfur: Twenty Years of War and Genocide in Sudan,” by Leora Kahn, features 30 photographs taken in Darfur by Colin Finlay, Sven Torfinn, Pep Bonet, Ron Haviv, Lynsey Addario, Chris-Steele Perkins, Kadir van Lohuizen and Oliver Jobard. Photographs in this exhibit capture a conflict which has led to some of the worst human rights abuses imaginable. These abuses include systematic and wide-scale murder, rape, torture, abduction and displacement. The images in the exhibit represent the reality of genocide. The people in the photographs are a reminder of life’s beauty and preciousness.

Image 3_il Questionable Issue: Currency of the Holocaust
View Full schedule
The currencies of the Nazi ghettos silently embody the tragedy, depravity, horror, hope and salvation of the time. The money in this collection is in some cases the only reminder we have of people erased from our world during World War II. These notes move our souls to anguish. Through its breadth and depth, this exhibit bears witness to the full scope of the Holocaust.
