The Birmingham Holocaust Education Center is proud to be able to loan the traveling version of Darkness into Life: Alabama Holocaust Survivors Through Photography and Art to your school, community, or museum. This sensitive exhibit of photography and art offers a special glimpse into the private memories of 20 Alabama Holocaust survivors, revealing stories of childhoods past, lost family and friends, despair and sadness, cruelty beyond belief, bravery, the joys of liberation, and new lives in Alabama. Through bold and thought-provoking images accompanied by educational narratives, one gains a richer understanding of the history of the Holocaust and its impact on these individuals and their families. All of the material in the original Permanent Exhibit is included in the Traveling Exhibit.
Despite the closure of the BHEC's physical space in the spring, we have continued to fulfill our mission and have even reached new audiences in the digital space. We invite you to explore and share our online programming and content.
