DOTHAN - An exhibit collecting the stories of Holocaust survivors now living in Alabama opened this week at the Dothan Campus as part of Troy University’s ongoing Year of Holocaust Remembrance.

“Darkness Into Life: Alabama Holocaust Survivors Through Photography and Art,” an exhibit on loan from the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center, will be on display inside the exhibit hall on the first floor of the Library/Technology Building through April 26.

Featuring the stories of 20 Holocaust survivors, the exhibit consists of photos, paintings and narratives by the survivors that teach the history of the Holocaust and offer a rich understanding of its impact on these individuals and their families.

“Darkness Into Life” is part of a Year of Holocaust Remembrance at TROY, which has included a number of special events, exhibits and lectures designed to explore the history and lasting effects of the Holocaust.
