'In Her Father's Eyes' exhibit coming to Troy University in October | Events
Troy University will host an exhibit at the Dothan Campus starting in October that explores the life of one Jewish family in Europe on the eve of the Holocaust as part of TROY's Year of Holocaust Remembrance.
"In Her Father's Eyes: A Slovak Childhood in the Shadow of the Holocaust" examines the life of Kitty Weichherz, a 13 year-old Czechoslovakian girl whose family was deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp in 1942. The exhibit consists of photographs and details about the family's life leading up to this event compiled from a daily diary kept by Kitty's father that remained safe with an aunt during the war.
The exhibit provides a powerful and poignant document of daily life in Europe on the eve of Hitler's Final Solution.
"In Her Father's Eyes" will be displayed inside the Library/Technology Building from Oct. 8 through Dec. 8. Admission is free and open to the public during normal library hours.
For more information, contact Library Director Christopher Shaffer at (334) 983-6556, ext.1320, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
"In Her Father's Eyes" is on loan from the Kennesaw State University Museum of History and Holocaust Education.
Other events in the Year of Holocaust Remembrance at TROY include the exhibit "Darkness Into Life: Alabama Holocaust Survivors through Photography and Art" on display at the Montgomery Campus through Nov. 30. That exhibit will travel to the Dothan Campus in March 2013.
