Panou-07Large exhibitions

With our large exhibitions, such as “Anne Frank – A History for Today” we tour across Romania and as it is a dual language exhibition (Romanian/Hungarian) we can show it in Hungarian-speaking parts of the country (or in Hungary itself).

This exhibition has 32 panels and needs 100 sqm of floor space to be comfortable. To date we have shown it in public libraries, a museum, a theatre and a synagogue.  To request that it comes to your town or city please write to ourContact page.

Small exhibitions

With our small exhibitions we tour up to a radius of 100kms of Oradea in Romania. We have four exhibitions available for touring:

 

Eva Heyman 1931-1944

This exhibition tells the story of Eva Heyman, a young diarist from Oradea, who tells of her hopes and fears as firstly her home town becomes part of Hungary and is firstly occupied by Hungarian armed forces and then followed by the Nazis.

She writes her diary both outside and inside the Oradea ghetto to which she is taken, before being transported in a cattle truck to Auschwitz, where she dies.

The exhibition tells the story of the Nazi regime and the Holocaust as experienced by a 13 year old girl from Oradea and as told in her diary.

 

Light in the night (Lumini in Noapte)

The exhibition covers the heroic actions of the Danish people in saving most of its Jewish population over 70 years ago; the Kindertransport to the UK; the saving of many thousands of Jews by Romanian diplomats; and the unselfish acts of many from Oradea.

It is important to understand that not everyone has to be a bystander when confronted with evil and this exhibition shows what nations or individuals can do to resist.

Hedy and her Memory Book

The exhibition tells the story of Hedy (Bohm) from Oradea who survived incarceration in a number of concentration camps, including Auschwitz. It also tells the story of her friends who wrote in her Memory Book, many of whom did not survive.

 

Panou-07Panou-07

 

 

The exhibition explains what happened to the Jewish population in Northern Transylvania in World War II as seen through the eyes of a young girl and her Memory Book.

 

Shalom!

This exhibition presents essential moments in the history of Judaism, the meaning of the main Jewish holidays, specific ritual objects, some of the main Jewish rituals and traditions, as well as information on the main Jewish communities that existed in Oradea prior to 1944.

The objective of this exhibition is to demystify what being Jewish means and to help counter anti-Semitism.

Teachers are invited to write to our Contact page if they would like us to come and present one of our exhibitions in their schools. Whether there is a charge for this service will depend upon the circumstances at the time.
