Testimony Photographs taken by Colonel Mitchell of the U.S. Signal Corps in 1945 are a testimony to the concentration camps, along with photographs distributed to soldiers as part of General Eisenhowers news campaign. Newspapers, pamphlets and monographs published at the end of the Second World War, testifying to the atrocities, are shown along with memoirs and memorials produced by survivors and dispersed communities in the decades following. Artistic responses to the Holocaust by Florida based artists, Kenneth Treister and David Crown, serve as testimony to the ways in which this unspeakable crime affected those who lived through the era.

Testimony documents the impact of the Holocaust on the victims and survivors, and it gives voice to the immense aftershock felt by subsequent generations. Inspired by recent donations to the Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica, the exhibition features primary sources that bear undeniable witness to the Holocaust. Victims testimony is given in previously unseen letters from members of the Stirt family sent from the Kovno Ghetto before they were murdered by the Nazis at Ninth Fort, and the papers and unpublished autobiography of the late Emanuel Merdinger, a concentration camp survivor and former Professor at the University of Florida.Left: Letter offering Emanuel Merdinger to return to Ferrara, Italy, August 28,1946.
