‘Transfer of Memory’ Exhibit

A powerful exhibition featuring the portraits and narratives of Minnesota Holocaust survivors is on display for the first time in nearly two years for a month-long run at St. Olaf College.

“Transfer of Memory” documents the stories of people who survived concentration camps or were forced into hiding as children, and later came to live in Minnesota. The exhibition debuted a decade ago and has been viewed by tens of thousands of people in stops across the Midwest. It aims to provide a visceral link between the Holocaust and the generations of people who lack direct memories or connections to the horrors many experienced during World War II.

The exhibition opened September 30 and runs through October 28 in The Link, located on the main level between the Center for Art and Dance and Tweet Hall of Music. It is open to the public daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
