The Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus will host the exhibit, Never Let It Rest: Sojourns in the Shadowlands,” Jan. 11-May 3. The Holocaust Memorial Center is located at 28123 Orchard Lake Road in Farmington Hills.
The exhibit is a mixed media installation that features sculpture, ceramics, photography, video and found objects relating to the small town of Salzwedel in the Saxony-Anhalt region of Germany during the time of Nazi control.
The artists, Hans Molzberger and Michael Roque Collins, will speak at the 7 p.m. opening, which is free with paid admission or membership and is generously supported by the PNC Foundation. Both artists have independently and collaboratively created art concerned with the Holocaust in Germany and Poland. Their artworks combine to create a powerful reminder of man’s inhumanity to man during the Holocaust.
“We have found the exhibits using multiple mediums like art and video allows it to reach a much broader audience,” said Holocaust Memorial Center Executive Director Stephen M. Goldman. “Never Let It Rest fulfills this goal and we look forward to its display and the visit from the artists themselves.”
The exhibit is generously supported by Susan Malinowski and Gary Shapiro, and Nancy and James Grosfeld.
About the Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus
The Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus opened in 1984. Local Holocaust survivors, with community support, founded the museum to teach about the senseless murder of millions, and why everyone must respect and stand up for the rights of others if the world is to prevent future discrimination, hate crime and genocide. As Michigan’s only Holocaust museum, the Holocaust Memorial Center annually touches the lives of more than 85,000 individuals, who leave the museum profoundly affected with a newly acquired sense of history, social responsibility and morality. The Holocaust Memorial Center’s exhibits create a call to action, teaching visitors through the examples of those who risked their lives to save others, and asking its guests to react to contemporary challenges such as racism, intolerance, bullying and prejudice.
The facility is wheelchair accessible and free parking is available at both the North and South entrances.
