"Darkness into Life": Holocaust Exhibit and Speaker Series

Throughout February, Birmingham-Southern College will host an educational art exhibit and lecture series, courtesy of the Birmingham Holocaust Education Committee.

One of the exhibits, "Darkness into Light: Alabama Holocaust Survivors through Photography and Art" will be displayed in the Durbin Art Gallery until February 24, with an opening reception on February 10 from 6-8PM.

Artist Mitzi J. Levin and photographer Becky Seitel will give the first of many lectures in conjunction with this exhibit. Their discussion will take place on February 9 at 11AM in the Norton Theatre.

There will also be a discussion of the exhibit by a faculty panel in the Harbert Auditorium on February 14 at 11AM.

Two more exhibits, "The Courage to Remember" and "Children of the Holocaust" will be housed in the BSC Library. The first is a full-color poster exhibit that charts the course of the Holocaust. The second is a literature collection about the Holocaust published for children and young adults.
