Tragedy & Resilience: Holocaust Survivors of Staten Island

Tragedy & Resilience: Holocaust Survivors of Staten Island

This video highlights an April 2015 gallery exhibition and speaker series created by Wagner College's Holocaust Education & Programming Center. The exhibition was curated by student Lauren Citarella and professor Lori Weintrob.

The exhibition in the Horrmann Library’s Spotlight Gallery focused upon the tragic journeys of local Holocaust survivors through dozens of artifacts, portraits, drawings and photos. Original drawings and photos featured in the exhibition were produced by Emil Jacoby, Sara Signorelli, Rita Reynolds and Leslie Lopez, while photos of Holocaust artifacts were provided by the Museum of Jewish Heritage: A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.
