Description: In order to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, the American Friends of the Ghetto Fighters' Museum has created a 44-panelexhibit that depicts the story of Jewish resistance to Nazi oppression and focuses on individual stories of survivors. The exhibit opened at the annual benefit Gala of the American Friends in New York earlier this year and, due to the very positive response, has now been made available to travel to communities throughout the United States for display. The exhibit, entitled Triumph of Life, is comprised of two parallel

tracks. One track is based on an educational exhibit produced by the Ghetto Fighters' Museum in Israel, and it portrays the many forms of resistance undertaken by the Jews in the Holocaust. The second track offers a more personal encounter with individual survivors who, through their own involvement and the involvement of their children in Holocaust education and remembrance, have supported the Ghetto Fighters' Museum in maintaining and strengthening the historic legacy of the Jewish resistance. The 44 color panels of 15.5 "x 22.5" incorporate photographs, quotes, and historical texts.
