Filming the Camps:
From Hollywood to Nuremburg

On view July 26 through December 30, 2018 

Filming the Camps Exhibit Photo 2

Directors John Ford, Samuel Fuller and George Stevens created classics like The Grapes of Wrath, Shane and The Big Red One. They also filmed the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. This powerful exhibit explores these filmmakers’ experiences during and after WWII, their confrontation with Nazi atrocities, and the mark it left on them as artists.

The exhibition, curated by historian and film director Christian Delage, was designed, created, and distributed by the Mémorial de la Shoah (Paris, France), and made possible through the generous support of SNCF.

The Holocaust Unfolds

On view October 3 through December 28, 2018

Detroit Jewish News Clips

Unlike mainstream media - including the Detroit Free Press and the New York Times - the Detroit Jewish News and its predecessor publication, the Detroit Jewish Chronicle, continuously reported on the rise and fall of Nazism. View reports from Hitler's ascension to power through the destruction of European Jewry to the trial of Adolph Eichmann.

The exhibit debunks the myths about what was known and when.

The exhibit is open Sunday through Friday and is free with museum admission or membership. For more information about the exhibit, please call 248-553-2400.

This exhibit is made possible by the Detroit Jewish News Foundation.
