On Saturday, July 16 at 10 a.m. an exhibit called “Helen Suzman: Fighter for Human Rights” opens and will run through Sept. 25. It tells the story of Suzman’s rise as the leading member of South Africa’s Parliament to oppose apartheid legislation during 36 years of public service. Meticulously selected photographs, personal letters, speeches, political cartoons and news articles convey the strength she demonstrated while facing constant animosity, anti-Semitism and intimidation from other South African Parliamentarians, colleagues and citizens.

Opening on Saturday, July 23 at 10 a.m. and running through Oct. 2 will be “Reflections on Man’s Fate: Artwork by Judith Weinshall Liberman.” This is an exhibition of paintings and textile works by artist Judith Weinshall Liberman. Drawn from works from the Museum’s permanent collection, the show includes wall hangings and works on canvas from the artist’s Holocaust paintings, Holocaust wall hangings, Skull series and Genocide series. Her work focuses on the present state of mankind as well as the relentlessness and enormity of history’s darkest period.

On Saturday, July 30 at 10 a.m. the museum will begin an exhibit titled “Women of Ravensbrück: Portraits of Courage,” which will run through Jan. 2. Ravensbrück, the Nazi’s major concentration camp for women, brought fear and terror to its imprisoned, tortured victims. Subject to unspeakable horrors, few survived. The faces of these triumphant women have been immortalized by artist Julia Terwilliger in one of the newest exhibits of Holocaust art to emerge today.
