To Bear Witness: Extraordinary Lives - Opening Reception

The Immigrant Story and the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education invite you to visit “To Bear Witness – Extraordinary Lives,” a multimedia exhibition that celebrates the lives of men and women who endured unthinkable cruelty elsewhere in the world, only to resume productive lives in Oregon.

“To Bear Witness” takes its name from the words of the late Nobel Prize–winning writer, activist, and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, who emphatically proclaimed, “For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.” The exhibition features profiles of survivors of the Nazi Holocaust; genocides in Europe, Africa, and Asia; and unimaginable atrocities of war. The profiles are united by the troubling truth that human despotism sometimes knows no bounds, but each is also a portrait of courage and human resilience. We present these stories in hopes that they will inspire, inform, and possibly instruct.

This multimedia exhibition opens on December 12, 2021, at the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education. The exhibit will run through May 15, 2022.
