Holocaust Exhibit: Kristallnacht “In Remembrance”

Through December 20 the Holocaust Center (851 North Maitland Avenue, Maitland) is featuring its newest exhibit, titled, “In Remembrance: 75 Years After Kristallnacht.” Eighteen artists, many of them local, have been invited to share their interpretation of that theme. Their juried art, accompanied by panels that trace the history of the rise of the Nazis and the lessons we can learn, help us remember why “never again” is a promise that must be kept. There’s no admission charge. Many of the works are for sale; a catalogue is available here. (See also Kristallnacht 2013.)
