Don’t Miss this Special Reception for “Through Soviet Jewish Eyes: Photography, War and the Holocaust” May 16 at Holocaust Museum Houston.
Although World War II is one of the most documented conflicts of the 20th century, western audiences have had little exposure to Soviet images.
The exhibition “Through Soviet Jewish Eyes: Photography, War, and the Holocaust” features 58 photographs revealing the war as presented through the lens of the most important Soviet photojournalists. Printed over six decades, the collection highlights works by Evgenii Khaldei, Georgii Zelma and Dmitrii Baltermants, among others, from the dawn of the Soviet era and throughout the Great Patriotic War, also known as the war’s Eastern Front.
Join us for this special reception 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 16, 2013. Admission is free, but advance registration is required. Visit Holocaust Museum to RSVP online.
On View April 25 through Oct. 27
