Dr. Milton Ohring of Teaneck, a former metallurgy and materials science professor at the Stevens Institute of Technology, will display his Holocaust-themed monuments and sculpture at the college, beginning on Sunday, April 16. The exhibit, “The Holocaust in Metal and Stone,” will be in the Samuel C. Williams Library at Stevens Institute. There will be an artist’s reception with kosher-for Passover food that day, from 1 to 3 p.m. The exhibit will run until July 1.

The exhibit is in response to the alarming increase of worldwide anti-Semitism and Holocaust forgetfulness, distortion, and even denial as a result of the inevitable decline in the numbers of survivors and witnesses. Dr. Ohring created these works to remember the unprecedented evil of the Holocaust.
