This exhibit offers reflections and images from Washington University (WU) students, faculty, and staff who traveled across Germany, Poland, and Lithuania in May 2016. The trip took place after a year of intensive study of the Holocaust as part of the WU FOCUS programs for first-year students. The exhibit encompasses critical perspectives on the history, memory, and representation of the Holocaust alongside students’ first-person reflections. A video recording of interviews with students and faculty accompanies the exhibit. An opening reception with a panel of participants will be held Thursday, February 2, 2017, 7:00-8:30 pm.
