Jewish museum receives grant

for exhibit about diaspora

The Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education has received a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to fund "To Bear Witness — Extraordinary Lives."

On view Oct. 8, 2020, through Jan. 31, 2021, this exhibit will capture, share and preserve the stories of people from varied backgrounds who fled their homelands.

Born in Bosnia, Iraq, Rwanda, Sudan, Cambodia, Syria and Central and Eastern Europe, these men and women, who have witnessed the horrors of war, genocide, famine or the Holocaust, built new lives in Oregon.

"To Bear Witness — Extraordinary Lives" aligns with OJMCHE's mission to challenge visitors to resist indifference and discrimination and to envision a just and inclusive world.

"IMLS support comes at a propitious time," said OJMCHE's Director Judy Margles.

"Fall 2020 will also be the first year for the implementation of the new mandate to implement Holocaust and genocide education in Oregon public schools. What better way to illustrate the enormity of genocide worldwide than to tell the stories of survivors."
