The German Department at the University of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce it will host the international traveling exhibition “Names Instead of Numbers: Remembrance Book for the Prisoners of Dachau Concentration Camp” from February 25 to March 10.
Nijmegen, Bordeaux, Vienna, Lublin, Zaporizhia, Berlin – these are a few of the thousands of places in Europe, large and small, from which people were deported to Dachau Concentration Camp between 1933 – 1945. The International Traveling Exhibition “Names Instead of Numbers” shows a selection of biographies from the Dachau Remembrance Book, in which the individual life stories of former prisoners are described, as well as background information about the Remembrance Book project and the history of the Dachau Concentration Camp.
There will be an reception to mark the opening of the exhibition from 4-6 p.m. on Monday, February 25 in Posvar Hall at the University of Pittsburgh. The exhibit will be on display from February 25 to March 10 in Posvar Hall. It is free and open to the public.
Displaying this exhibit is made possible by the German Department, the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences, the Jewish Studies Program, and the European Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh.
