Stories of Survival Exhibition
  • When you've lost everything, a single object can take on extraordinary meaning.

    Stories of Survival showcases more than 60 never-before-seen personal items brought to America by Survivors of the Holocaust and genocide. Each artifact is dramatically presented alongside oversized photographs by renowned documentarian Jim Lommasson with handwritten responses by Survivors or their family members.

    The objects are as every day as a baby doll and a black suitcase and as symbolic as a young mother’s cookbook and a wedding announcement—saved by local Survivors from genocides around the world, including Armenia, Bosnia, Cambodia, Iraq, Rwanda, South Sudan, and Syria.
