Dr. Yehuda Nir and Dr. Bonnie Maslin Exhibit Hall
Gelman Library, 7th floor

The Remembering the Holocaust: A Story of Loss, Love and Survival exhibit was created by GW's class on “Holocaust Memory." This exhibit is based on the experiences of two extraordinary young Polish Jews, Norman and Amalie Petranker Salsitz, most of whose relatives were murdered in the Holocaust but who, by their courage and wits, survived, got married, came to America, raised a family and wrote a gripping memoir, Against All Odds. The many photographs and documents they saved, and their utter devotion to memory, enabled them to amass and document a collection that is utterly unique and that forms the basis of this exhibition.  It tells their story as well as the story of a world that was and is no more.
