EPHM is proud to host the traveling exhibit, Rebirth After the Holocaust: The Bergen-Belsen Displaced Persons Camp, 1945-1950
August 5 – November 5, 2017
Open House: Saturday – August 5, 1:00pm – 5:00pm
This photo-documentary exhibit illuminates the inspiring and untold history of Holocaust survivors in the years immediately following their liberation from the Nazis. Bergen-Belsen, a wartime concentration camp, became the largest displaced persons camp in Germany, at a time when over 250,000 displaced, homeless Jewish survivors sought to recover from the destruction of their families and communities, regain their physical health, and gather the strength and hope to create new families and new homes in new lands.
This powerful exhibit examines the trials and challenges that survivors faced in the ashes of tragedy and destruction. Their strength, determination, and hope enabled them to begin life again, to confront the daunting task of immigration, and to pass on the legacy of survival to the generations after them.
