Helene Berr, A Stolen Life
Adult Services Dept, HP Library
This exhibit is based on the journal written by Hélène Berr, a young Jewish French woman, whose future was cut short by Vichy Government's laws and the extermination plan imagined by the Nazis. Studying English Literature at Sorbonne University, Helene Berr was 21 years old when she began her journal. We follow her steps through Paris under the German Occupation, until her deportation to Auschwitz in 1944. The exhibit goes beyond the framework of Hélène Berr's journal and personality, as it broadens the context of the Occupation and addresses the persecution of the Jews in France. With the support of photographs, archives, films, interactive animations and maps, this exhibition shows how the daily lives of Jews had been impacted by these terrible acts of violence.
This exhibition, curated by Karen Taieb and Sophie Nagiscarde, with the guidance of Mariette Job, was designed, created, and distributed by the Mémorial de la Shoah (Paris, France), and made possible through the generous support of SNCF.
