Righteous of Poland
90% of Poland’s 3.3 million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust. Among the survivors were Zygie Allweiss and his brother Sol z”l, both of whom eventually moved to the Detroit area.
Rabbi Jacques Cukierkorn and Bill Tammeus tell the Allweiss story in their book They Were Just People: Stories of Rescue in Poland During the Holocaust, along with nearly two dozen other stories of how Jews in Poland survived the Shoah with non-Jewish help. Join us in honoring the survivors and those who saved them.

The Holocaust Portfolio Exhibit
Our newest exhibit, The Holocaust Portfolio, opened on Sunday with a special artist talk and presentation by Martin Mendelsberg.
Mendelsberg is a graphic artist and educator. He combines Hebrew characters with historical photographs of life before and during the Holocaust, creating artworks that are haunting, meaningful, and even beautiful. By using Hebrew text, a script which is already beautiful, together with photographs, he gives meaning to each letter and memorializes the countless victims of hate, bigotry, and intolerance.
The exhibit runs through August 24th and is free with museum admission. Members can visit the exhibit free of charge throughout the summer.
The exhibit is generously supported by: Susan Malinowski and Gary Shapiro and Lori and Steven Weisberg
