Transfer of Memory

April 17 though June 23, 2019
Anderson Center

The Anderson Center is pleased to partner with the Goodhue County Historical Society and The Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC) to present Transfer of Memory, a photo exhibition of Holocaust survivors living in Minnesota, in their homes and in full color.

Each Holocaust survivor in Transfer of Memory shares a story of survival during exceedingly difficult circumstances, yet as a collection, these images focus on life and hope. From Europe to Minnesota, it was here they fashioned their dreams, their futures, and their families – their lives are a constant reminder of the value of freedom and the enduring human spirit. Photographer David Sherman and writer Lili Chester, in partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, created this photography exhibition.

As exhibition photographer David Sherman says, β€œThe urgency for this project is so clear. Our survivor community is aged and aging. The number of living Holocaust survivors is becoming fewer and fewer. It is important for me to ensure that survivors are remembered in a respectful and beautiful way – by face, by name, and by story.”
