The Dachau Album: An Interfaith Holocaust Project

Sunday, May 25, 2018 at 4pm
$18 Community / $36 Preferred
A multi-media presentation about two survivors - a Jewish Boy and a Roman Catholic Artist. The Dachau Album tells the story of two men that seek to reveal the mysteries Arnold Unger discovered at 15 years old.

Arnold Unger, at 15 years old, survived the concentration camp in Dachau, Germany. Upon his emigration to the United States in 1947, he had in his possession a sequential artistic narrative of life and death in Dachau – an Artist’s Diary. This leather-bound album contained 30 drawings by Michael Porulski, a Roman Catholic Polish political prisoner. The album also contains artifacts such as Nazi uniform patches, a swatch of a prisoner’s uniform, and hundreds of photographs portraying the horrors of the camp, followed by the jubilation of the prisoners upon liberation and their attempts at a normal life. The Dachau Album Project tells the compelling stories of these two men, seeks to uncover the mysteries contained within it and relates the experience of the Holocaust in a way never depicted before.

Co-Sponsors: Arnold Unger Foundation for Remembrance and Yiddishkayt initiative, Inc.
