A Town Known as Auschwitz: The Life and Death of a Jewish Community
Opens May 16, 2014

This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany: Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Research, Documentation and Education; The David Berg Foundation; Salo W. and Jeannette M. Baron Foundation; Trust for Mutual Understanding; and the Nartel Family Foundation.
