Free Shoah Exhibition Through April 26

Through April 26, the Museum of Jewish Heritage in Battery Park freely welcomes visitors to experience Memory Unearthed, the Lodz Ghetto Photographs of Henryk Ross, a chilling exhibition of Jewish ghetto life as recorded surreptitiously by a Jew whom the Nazis tasked with taking merely bureaucratic photos.  Both the photographer and his photographs survived, and both proved instrumental in avenging the horrors.  Well worth the 20-minute subway ride to the 4 and 5 train’s “Bowling Green” station.
