Before it opens to the public, members are invited to attend the exclusive Member Preview of Survivors: Faces of Life After the Holocaust, a powerful photography exhibition showcasing 75 large-scale portraits of Holocaust survivors taken by famed photographer Martin Schoeller.
Stripped of artifice, Schoeller’s photographs portray the beauty, humanity, and resilience of those who survived and grew old in the face of antisemitism—while imagining those who were never given the chance. The portraits are accompanied by the biography of each sitter, as well as video footage documenting the artist’s photographic process. This will be the first exhibition of this profound series in a major U.S. museum.
This is the inaugural exhibition in the Rita Lowenstein Gallery, dedicated by Wendy & Neil Sandler and Michael Lowenstein & Sheri Warshaw in honor of their mother, a hidden child.
Survivors: Faces of Life After the Holocaust is co-organized by Martin Schoeller and the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. Originated by Yad Vashem on the occasion of the 75th Anniversary Liberation of Auschwitz.
Survivors: Faces of Life After the Holocaust is made possible by The Knapp Family Foundation, the Goldie & David Blanksteen Foundation, Ben and Victoria Feder, and other generous supporters.
