From the Illinois Holocaust Museum—Spots of Light

“Spots of Light: To Be a Woman in the Holocaust is the first international exhibition to focus exclusively on women and their experiences in the Holocaust. Through these women’s initiative, creativity and courage, the exhibit demonstrates that human beings are strong enough, even in the most difficult of circumstances, to maintain those values which are the foundation of humanity: motherhood, friendship, faith and love.

In this large-scale video-art installation, images move and change before the visitor’s eyes, giving historical materials a new and contemporary feel and perspective. Interwoven with these text and photographs that continuously fade in and out are segments of interviews with 10 women Holocaust survivors.”
