This exhibition explores the global events of the Holocaust through the personal stories and archival collections at Miami University and Western College. On display for the first time are original documents and testimonies of ten Miami University alumni and faculty members who survived the Holocaust, fought as American Jews, helped liberate concentration camps, and served as key figures in the Nuremberg Trials.

Co-sponsored by the Walter Havighurst Special Collections & University Archives and Hillel at Miami University
