Women of Ravensbrück: Portraits of Courage
July 30, 2016 @ 10:00 am – January 2, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Ravensbrück, the Nazi’s major concentration camp for women, brought fear and terror to its imprisoned, tortured victims. Subject to unspeakable horrors, few survived. The faces of these triumphant women have been immortalized by artist Julia Terwilliger in one of the newest exhibits of Holocaust art to emerge today.
