Exhibit Opening

Women at the Frontline of Mass Violence Worldwide

 

Join us for the opening of Women at the Frontline of Mass Violence Worldwide, a traveling exhibit curated by Yahad-In Unum that gives voice to female survivors of mass violence and genocide.

Speakers:

- Marco Gonzalez, Executive Director, Yahad-In Unum

- Anne-Sophie Simenel, Cutural Attache, Consulate General of France

- Sandra Gruner-Domic, PhD, Researcher, Guatemalan Genocide

- Beth Kean, Executive Director, Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust

 

The exhibit includes portraits and excerpts of testimony from the following groups:

- Jewish female survivors of the Holocaust by Bullets in Eastern Europe

- Roma female survivors of the Porajmos, the genocide against the Roma during World War II

- Indigenous women from Guatemala, victims of the internal armed conflict in the 1980s

- Yazidi female survivors, victims of ISIS in Iraq today

By focusing on female survivors, the exhibit helps them regain their dignity while shedding light on a part of the history of mass violence that usually remains in the shadows. 

The exhibit is presented in English and Spanish.

The event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is required:
