Experience the powerful portraits of 161 Holocaust survivors at Glenbow Museum at The Edison, starting this May 27, 2022 until July 3, 2022.  

The exhibition, Here to Tell: Faces of Holocaust Survivors is a impactful exhibit of accounts of what life what like in the Holocaust, post-war, and their connection to Calgary. 

"Here to Tell is powerful and moving. We encourage all Calgarians to experience this important exhibition and hear the stories of courage and resilience.”

Nicholas R. Bell, President & CEO, Glenbow

The exhibit will feature portraits of 39 living survivors, 122 deceased survivors, their individual stories and behind-the-scenes look at the making of Here to Tell in a 30-minute documentary shown at the exhibition.

Here to Tell highlights the resiliency and hope of the survivors. “We will soon be in a world without Holocaust survivors. We need to tell and preserve their stories, particularly in a time when racism and antisemitism continues to be so prevalent in our world,” said Marnie Bondar, organizer behind Here to Tell.
