Remembering Hell



More than a dozen Memphians are included in a traveling photography exhibit that focuses on the lives of men and women who survived the Holocaust. Called “Living On,” the exhibit offers larger-than-life portraits, accompanied by text panels that describe each person’s experience in his or her own words.

The exhibit is currently on view at the East Tennessee History Center in Knoxville, and was produced by University of Tennessee associate professor of journalism Robert Heller, with assistance from writer Dawn Weiss Smith. Heller visited more than 70 Tennesseans who were concentration-camp survivors, refugees, or soldiers who helped liberate the camps after Nazi Germany fell. For more about the collection, go here.
