On November 21, NYC-ARTS co-host and New York Emmy winner Paula Zahn hosts Auschwitz Remembered: An NYC-ARTS Special, the new, one-hour special that shares with viewers the importance and timeliness of the exhibition “Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away.” currently on view through August 2020 at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust located in lower Manhattan.
The most comprehensive exhibition of its kind on the Holocaust ever exhibited in North America, it brings together more than more than 700 original objects and 400 photographs from lenders and private collections from around the world. These include hundreds of personal items that had all belonged to victims and survivors of Auschwitz. It explores the location as the site of the largest documented mass murder in human history and symbol of unbounded hatred.
The one-hour special features interviews with Bruce Ratner, Chairman of the Board of The Museum of Jewish Heritage; Ronald S. Lauder, Founder and Chairman of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation Committee and President of the World Jewish Congress; and members of the community of Holocaust survivors.
