VISUAL:         In addition to the speaking program, the public is also welcomed to visit the “Letters to Sala: A Young Woman’s Life in Nazi Labor Camps” exhibition inside the Central Library Gallery. Letters to Sala uses postcards and photographs to tell the story of Sala Garncarz Kirschner, who survived five year in Nazi labor slave camps. Originally curated for the New York Public Library by Jill Vexler, the traveling version of the exhibition is on a five-year tour across the United States.

 

MORE:           San Antonio Public Library and its partners aim to enlighten and educate the community with this important initiative in order to promote tolerance and inspire acceptance. The 2020 theme was Women in the Holocaust. Physically more vulnerable and more likely to be caretakers than men, women faced special challenges during the Holocaust. Offsetting these weaknesses, women were also more likely to band together to support one another in the camps and ghettos.

.

Throughout the month of January, the Holocaust Memorial Museum and the San Antonio Public Library hosted programs that highlighted artists and works of art exploring the experiences of women Holocaust survivors during the war and after their liberation.
