RESCUING CHILDREN ON THE BRINK OF WAR
On display through December 31
Created by Yeshiva University Museum and the Leo Baeck Institute, the exhibition illuminates the story of the Kindertransport (German for “Children’s Transport”), the organized rescue effort that brought thousands of Jewish children from Nazi Europe to Great Britain in the late 1930s.
The exhibition explores the children’s difficult and often heartbreaking journeys through original artifacts, personal stories, and engaging media. Artifacts from local Detroit Kinder are included in this captivating exhibit. Kindertransport – Rescuing Children on the Brink of War is open Sunday-Friday during regular operating hours of the HMC and is included with museum admission or membership.

The Kappy Family Anne Frank Art & Writing Competition Gallery
On display through September 27
The Kappy Family Anne Frank Art & Writing Competition seeks to empower and inspire today’s students to lead our world to a better future. Inspired by their parent’s stories of survival during the Holocaust, the Kappy family generously sponsors this competition to not only memorialize the victims, but to educate students about the dangers of hatred, prejudice, and discrimination. After creating a piece of art or writing inspired by Anne Frank, we hope that students will apply the lessons of the Holocaust throughout their lives by seizing opportunities to step up, take action, and make our world a better place.The Gallery, on display in the Auditorium and International Institute of the Righteous, hosts the winning and honorable mention pieces in each of the 6 categories – Drawing, Painting, Photography, Fiction, Non-Fiction, and Poetry.
