Featured Exhibit: Pictures of Resistance: The Wartime Photographs of Jewish Partisan Faye SchulmanVirginia Holocaust Museum (VHM) 2000 East Cary Street, Richmond
Born in Poland in 1924, Faye Schulman received her first camera from her brother when she was 13. That camera ultimately saved her life and allowed her to document Jewish partisan activity later. As a result, she is one of the only known Jewish partisan photographers. Schulman's rare collection of images captures the camaraderie, horror, loss, bravery, and triumph of the rag-tag, resilient partisans—some Jewish, some not—who fought the Germans and their collaborators. Pictures of Resistance: The Wartime Photography of Jewish Partisan Faye Schulman, a compelling traveling exhibition produced by the Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation (JPEF) and curated by Jill Vexler, Ph. D, poses probing questions about this incredible woman and the people whose images she documented. Click HERE to see Alexa Welch Edlund's review of the exhibit in the Richmond Times Dispatch.
