The Jewish Experience: Pogrom
One hundred years ago, amid the chaos of the Russian Civil War, multiple armies and bands of gangs swept Eastern Europe, killing as many as 300,000 Jews. Scholars today call these events “the forgotten holocaust” – a precursor to the greater tragedy just 20 years later. Yet, this piece of history remains little known. "The Jewish Experience: Pogrom" is the first-ever photographic and video exhibit, helping to bring these events to light. This traveling exhibit features 45 rare, archival photographs together with a five-minute, looping video overview of this time period. The photographs, from the rare book Jewish Pogroms 1918-1921 (Moscow, 1926), are displayed in illuminated kiosks and document the anti-Jewish violence in Ukraine, Belarus, and Moldova. The video is comprised of material from the first-ever pogrom documentary "My Dear Children." It can be previewed on the exhibit’s website.
