The Sam and Inge Lewkowitz Collection
Hancock Presents: Selections from the Permanent Collection
On display November 10, 2018 through May 5, 2019
In the latest special exhibit of objects from The Florida Holocaust Museum’s permanent collection, the stories of Sam and Inge Lewkowitz are highlighted. Sam Lewkowitz and Inge London were forced to the edges of society by the Nazis during World War II. Sam was forced to flee Germany to Shanghai, China. Inge was trapped in Berlin during the war and was constantly under the eyes of the Nazi regime. After the war they met in the United States and married, beginning a new phase of their lives.
Central to the mission of The FHM is the program to collect, preserve, and make available to the public the historical record and artistic and interpretation of the Holocaust and other genocides. The Museum collects and maintains the material that supports its efforts in the areas of research, exhibition, education, and commemoration. The focus of The FHM’s collecting efforts is on the policies, events, and experiences associated with the Holocaust.

The Sam and Inge Lewkowitz Collection is on display now at The Florida Holocaust Museum.
