Monday at Museum Series: Christopher Hale: Deception Engages with a Puzzle

01/27/2020 07:00 PM

Hale presents a new account of the ‘Brand Mission’ based on evidence in the national archives of Germany, Hungary, Britain and the U.S. Hale reveals that Eichmann’s offer formed one part of a monstrous deception designed to outwit the leaders of the last surviving Jewish community in Europe. The deception was more complex and – from the German point of view – more successful than any operation mounted by the secret services of the Allied governments.

Auschwitz—A Place on Earth: The Auschwitz Album

January 9, 2020 - March 1, 2020

Over one million Jewish men, women and children were murdered in Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest extermination camp during the Holocaust. The so-called Auschwitz Album is the only known visual documentation of the arrival of a transport of Jews to Auschwitz-Birkenau. The compelling photographs in this exhibition created by Yad Vashem in Jerusalem document the “processing” of Jews from the Carpatho-Ruthenia region up to but not including their mass murder.
