In Honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day-

Through Soviet Jewish Eyes: Photography, War, and the Holocaust

1942, 5 Jewish photographers working for the Soviet press became the first liberators to photograph the Holocaust. What pictures did they take as journalists for the ‘other ally’? Why were Jewish photographers documenting the war and the Holocaust in the first place? Together, we will uncover the lost history of the first liberator photographers of World War II.

Dr. Shneer is the Louis P. Singer Endowed Chair in Jewish History, Chair of the Department of Religious Studies, and Professor of History, Religious Studies and Jewish Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Complimentary reservations are available by calling 913-327-8196 or emailing rsvp@mchekc.org. This program is presented in partnership with KU Jewish Studies, and supported by donations to MCHE’s 25th Anniversary Fund the Future Campaign.
