Holocaust exhibit comes to Evansville

An exhibit showing the horrors of the Holocaust is now on display in Evansville.

25 years of art depicting the Holocaust are set up at the Adath B’Nai Israel Temple on Newburgh Road.

They were created by students’ part of Western Kentucky University’s gifted and talented camp.

A three-week course teaches students about Nazi Germany and the Holocaust.

"It's an intense study of the subject, and I do tell people that when I was telling the students that I have the same kids seven hours per day, and I saw a young student in the back. She goes 'Oh, my God.' And I said, 'I saw that.'"

The Holocaust exhibit will be on display at the temple until February 17, 2019.

Holocaust survivor Fred Gross will be there Sunday, February 10, 2019 to speak and for a book signing.


Starting Monday and running through February 17, Temple Adath B’Nai Israel is hosting a unique Holocaust exhibit.

“A New Generation Remembers” runs weekdays from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and weekends 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.

On February 10, Holocaust survivor Fred Gross will be part of a special event called “An Afternoon of Remembrance.”

It will run from 2-4 p.m.

A reception and book signing will take place following the event.
