Every Child Has A Name

It seems we are jumping from one event to another here at the DHM! After wrapping up our Hope for Humanity Dinner, we started planning our next temporary exhibit, Every Child Has A Name. This comprehensive exhibit will cover one of the most painful aspects of the Holocaust–the deaths of 1.5 million children. We will be presenting No Child’s Play, an exhibit from Yad Vashem, and an exhibit on the children of Terezin, on loan from the Jewish Museum of Prague. The exhibit will also feature a special sculpture honoring the children lost to the Holocaust created using a portion of the 1.5 million pennies collected by Dallas children.

We hope that you will make a special attempt to see Every Child has a Name. The exhibit opens December 8, and will remain at the DHM until March 18. Be sure to check back here for more updates!

Exhibit: The Color of Memory

Artists: Veronique Jonas and Julie Meetal

About the Exhibit: The Color of Memory presents the multi-media work of Julie Meetal and Veronique Jonas. Their art embodies the searing effect of the Holocaust on their families and on the Jews of Europe at the hands of the German Third Reich from 1939-1945.

Question to Consider: The artists offer this question to those who see their work: “Do you think there can be beauty in horror, and horror in beauty?”
