Maltz Announces Exhibit Honoring Women in Holocaust

The exhibit originated in Jerusalem and is the only to focus on women's experiences in the Holocaust

The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage's first exhibition of 2013 will honor the memory of women in the Holocaust.

Maltz announced this week that "Spots of Light: To Be a Woman in the Holocaust" will be at the museum from March 19 to June 9. Yad Vashem first created this exhibit in Jerusalem. It is the first to solely focus on stories of women's experiences in the Holocaust.

The exhibit features a large video installation with various images of the women involved. According to a Maltz news release, the exhibit's focus will be women who displayed courage, creativity and initiative.

"The exhibit demonstrates that human beings are strong enough, even in the most difficult of circumstances, to maintain those values which are the foundation of humanity: Motherhood, friendship, faith and love," the statement reads.

The exhibit will cost $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and students, 12 or older. Children, ages 5 to 11, get in for $5 and children under 5 can enter for free.
