Exhibit Name: “From the Children, About the Children, For the Children: Art and Writing of the Holocaust”
The Institute for Holocaust Education has redeveloped an exhibit on material panels titled, “From the Children, About the Children, For the Children: Art of the Holocaust” originally created by The Center for Holocaust and Humanities of Cincinnati, Ohio. “Art of the Holocaust” is a collection of children’s artwork and poetry from the Holocaust, which encourages responses from today’s youth.
In addition, the IHE has created five additional panels which include excerpts from two youth newspapers that were written in the Terezin ghetto in Czechoslovakia. Boys of ages 12-15 who were living in the required barracks created their own means of expression by editing newspapers. The “Kamarad” (meaning “Companion” or “Friend”) and “Vedem”(meaning “In the Lead”) were read each week on Fridays and included daily accounts, poetry, comic strips and book reviews. Most of the children involved in writing these newspapers perished in Auschwitz or other extermination camps before the war’s end. But their writings were somehow preserved and later published.
The materials included in these panels were provided with permission from Israel’s Beit Theresienstadt Martyrs’ Remembrance Association and the Center for Holocaust and Humanities. The exhibit is easily transportable and is available for a $20 fee for one week. Click here to download the Exhibit Registration Form.

Description: “Diaries of Humanity” includes archival letters and diary entries from the Ghetto Fighters’ Museum mounted on 7 24” x 36” plexi-glass panels. The exhibit also includes two plexi-glass cut out images of children from the time of the Holocaust and a panel with a stunning letter describing the day of liberation by an American soldier at Dachau concentration camp. One panel, a diary entry written by a young woman during the last days of the Warsaw ghetto uprising and describing her hiding place, is accompanied by an English translation audio tape recounting the last hours of existence in the ghetto.
Exhibit Name: “The Wartime Escape: Margret and H.A. Rey’s Journey from France”
“The Wartime Escape: Margret and H.A. Rey’s Journey from France” tells the story of the Rey’s journey, featuring 25 framed art prints by artist Allan Drummond and supplemental archival images from the extraordinary holdings of the DeGrummond Collection of Children’s Literature at the University of Southern Mississippi. The exhibition is based in part on the 2005 publication, The Journey that Saved Curious George: The True Wartime Escape of Margret and H.A. Rey, written by Louise Borden and illustrated by Allan Drummond (Houghton Mifflin Company, New York). The exhibition is organized and curated by Beth Seldin Dotan, Director of the Institute for Holocaust Education in Omaha, Nebraska.
More than just the tale of a rousing escape from occupied France, this exhibition celebrates a timeless survival story, one that serves as a potent reminder of the power of human creativity and the cost when voices and visions are silenced by the impact of war.
