The Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives will host the U.S. premiere of Yahad-In Unum’s photography exhibit, “Women at the Frontline of Mass Violence and Genocide,” at Queensborough Community College. The exhibit is in partnership with the French organization Yahad-In Unum, a global human rights organization focusing on researching and denouncing genocidal and mass violence, that created the exhibit.

The exhibit, which includes 19 photographs and video testimonies from female survivors of genocides spanning over 60 years, including the Holocaust, will run until September 15. In cooperation with Remember the Women Institute, there will be a reception and panel discussion on Sunday, August 28, from 1 to 3 p.m. For information, go to www.qcc.cuny.edu/khrca.
