There are two exhibits in New York City that you may find of interest:

 


The Museum of Jewish Heritage: A Living Memorial to the Holocaust has announced it is extending its exhibit Auschwitz Not long ago Not far Away through August 30, 2020. It was originally scheduled to close this Fall. Exhibits include a train car that shuttled Jews from ghettos to concentration camps, artifacts from Anne Frank’s secret annex and a shofar that was blown at Auschwitz.  The exhibit opened last May and over 106,000 people have thus far visited the exhibit.  The exhibit has over 700 original objects and 400 photographs from 20 institutions and museums around the world.
