Event DateJuly 12, 2004–September 15, 2004
VenueVancouver Holocaust Education Centre
DescriptionThe Post War Photographs of Henry Ries presents thirty-five photographs from New York Times photojournalist Henry Ries documenting the Rothschild Hospital Displaced Person (DP) camp and the return of the Exodus 1947 passengers to Germany. The exhibition captures these two powerful moments in the lives of Jews who had survived the Shoah only to find themselves with no place to call home in the aftermath of the Holocaust. These photographs attest to the dislocation and the waiting of the DPs as they pondered their future and came to grips with their past.
