LAMOTH Opens Holocaust Survivors Exhibit Sunday
By Matt Lopez, Beverly Hills Courier
The Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust captures the essence of Holocaust survivors, and the memories they carry with them, in a new exhibit opening Oct. 25 called Portraits In Black And White: Survivors And What They Carry. The exhibit features powerful portraits of Holocaust Survivors from photographer Barbara Mack. The Survivors photographed participate in Café Europa, a social club for Survivors in Los Angeles sponsored by Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles. In each photograph, the Survivors pose with an object from their past, whether it be a faded photo, a kiddush cup or a violin. Along with writer Pamela Wick, Mack compiles brief biographies about each survivor, chronicling details that accompany the photographs. The exhibit is accompanied by two books: Portraits In Black And White: Holocaust Survivors Of Café Europa, volume I & II. LAMOTH invites the public to a reception and Q&A with Mack on Oct. 25 at 2 p.m. Potential visitors can RSVP to email@example.com.
