The Basilica of Saint Mary is honored to host Transfer of Memory, an exhibition of portraits and stories of Minnesota Holocaust survivors, on display February 7-March 11, 2018, presented in partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC).
Each Holocaust survivor in Transfer of Memory (transferofmemory.org) shares a story of survival during exceedingly difficult circumstances, yet as a collection, these images focus on life and hope. From Europe to Minnesota, survivors built their dreams, futures, and 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.
“The Basilica is committed to serving the community as a center for the arts and a leader in interfaith dialogue,” said Johan van Parys, director of liturgy and sacred arts at The Basilica. “We welcome all to visit this powerful exhibit.”
“We thank our friends at The Basilica of Saint Mary for their leadership, creativity, and commitment to interfaith relations as they host Transfer of Memory,” added Steve Hunegs, JCRC executive director.
