The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education in partnership with Hebrew Union College brings to Cincinnati the exhibit, The Jews of Częstochowa from April 22, 2012 through July 1, 2012.
The exhibition commemorates the Jewish contributions to the Polish city of Częstochowa, the once thriving community of 40,000 Jewish inhabitants before the devastation of their lives by the Nazis. It features photographs and documents, depicting life in the Jewish city before, during and after World War II. The exhibit was made possible in part by Holocaust survivor, Sigmund Rolat who studied at the University of Cincinnati after coming to the United States following the war. The Jews of Częstochowa is presented in honor of Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, commemorating the lives and heroism of Jewish people who died in the Holocaust between 1933 and 1945.
