Dallas Holocaust Museum presents The Lodz Ghetto Children and the Legend of the Prince
Dallas Holocaust Museum will present The Lodz Ghetto Children and the Legend of the Prince, a lecture by Dr. Irena Kohn, an independent scholar living in Toronto. Dr. Kohn wrote her 2008 University of Toronto doctoral dissertation on literary and artistic witness accounts of the Lodz Ghetto.
Dr. Kohn is an expert on the Lodz Ghetto which was located in the center of Poland and 160,000 mostly Polish Jews were imprisoned there. Dr. Kohn can interpret the thought processes behind the eyes of the faces in the Grossman and Ross photographs and will enhance the audience’s experience with the exhibit.
The Faces of the Ghetto: Their Lives are Our Lessons exhibit will be available for viewing an hour prior to the lecture and for thirty minutes following the lecture.
