will discuss images from two recently found photo albums. The first album depicts the arrival of Hungarian Jews to the death camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau. The second contains pictures of the camp personnel relaxing and enjoying themselves.
When these two albums are juxtaposed, we get a troubling glimpse into the complexities of the human experience and what they tell us about the Holocaust’s victims and perpetrators.
These events are open to CHJ members and nonmembers.
