This image of a Rwandan child is one element of the new exhibit at The University of Hartford’s Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies, “Genocide: Israel Charny and the Scourge of the Twentieth Century.”
The show will open at the University’s Museum of Jewish Civilization on Monday, Sept. 23, with a reception that begins at 7 p.m.
The show chronicles the life of Israel W. Charny, a scholar, and highlights the Armenian Genocide of 1915, the Holocaust and the Rwandan Genocide of 1994. The exhibition will feature photographs and artifacts from Rwanda provided by Joe Olzacki, a local educator; the work of University of Hartford Prof. Mari Firkatian, the descendant of survivors of the Armenian Genocide; and photos taken by members of the Greenberg Center’s Sobibor Documentation Project in Poland.
The exhibit will be up Tuesday, April 1, 2014.
