Virginia Holocaust Museum presents ‘Memorial Without Witness’
Free Press staff report | 11/22/2023, 6 p.m.
“Memorial Without Witness,” an exhibit of eight floor-to-ceiling size photographs taken at the Auschwitz death camp by Dr. Charles W. Sydnor Jr., will be on display at the Virginia Holocaust Museum until Nov. 30.
Dr. Sydnor is senior historian at the VHM. A historian of the Holocaust and World War II, he provided the United States Department of Justice and its Office of Special Investigations with expert testimony in 21 court cases involving former SS concentration camp guards and Nazi death camp collaborators.
“Memorial Without Witness” features a curated collection of images that have been enlarged to wall-size panels.
As visitors walk among the images, they will see and feel what it is like, walking alone among the rubble and decay of the Nazi regime’s most notorious concentration camp, according to a museum news release.
Admission is free and open to the public. Visit vaholocaust.org for more information about the Virignia Holocaust Museum.
