Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away.

Sunday, December 8, 2019 10 Kislev 5780

2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

For the first time, a traveling exhibition dedicated to the historical significance of Auschwitz is being presented to a U.S. audience. CBH congregants will have a tour of the exhibit at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in NYC. Plans are in process for possible group lunch in NYC before the tour and carpooling from CBH.

This groundbreaking exhibition brings together more than 700 original objects and 400 photographs from over 20 institutions and museums around the world. Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away. is the most comprehensive exhibition dedicated to the history of Auschwitz and its role in the Holocaust ever presented in North America, and an unparalleled opportunity to confront the singular face of human evil—one that arose not long ago and not far away. The most significant site of the Holocaust, Auschwitz was not a single entity, but a complex of 48 concentration and extermination camps, at which 1 million Jews—and tens of thousands of others—were murdered. The exhibition explores the dual identity of the camp as a physical location—the largest documented mass murder site in human history—and as a symbol of the borderless manifestation of hatred and human barbarity.
