Jewish History Museum
564 S. Stone Ave.,
Tucson, AZ 85701
Located in the historic first synagogue building in Arizona, the Jewish History Museum collects, preserves and teaches the history of the Jewish experience in the Southwest.
The museum is hosting the “Hélène Berr, A Stolen Life” exhibit November 9, 2014 through February 1, 2015.
This traveling exhibition is based on the Journal written by Hélène Berr, a young Jewish French woman, whose promising future was brutally cut short by Vichy Government’s laws and the extermination plan imagined by the Nazis. Studying English literature at Sorbonne University, Berr was 21 years old when she began writing her Journal. We follow her steps through Paris under the German Occupation, perceiving the daily experience of the unbearable, oscillating between hope and despair, until her arrest and deportation to Auschwitz in 1944.
“Hélène Berr, A Stolen Life” will be open to the public Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday from 1 to 5pm, and Friday from noon to 3pm.
