Stories Among Us: Washington State Connections to the Holocaust

The Holocaust Center’s “Stories Among Us” exhibit consists of seven stories from the Holocaust as told through the experiences of six survivors and one liberator that live or have lived in Washington State. Each person’s story provides a different perspective of the Holocaust – from experiences as a refugee, to those in a concentration camp, to a U.S. soldier’s liberation of Buchenwald.

This exhibit is made possible by generous funding from Washington State, the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, and 4Culture King County Lodging Tax.
