The Birmingham Holocaust Education Center and The Pell City Public Library proudly present:
Becky Seitel, Photographer and Mitzi J. Levin, Artist
This sensitive collection of photography by Becky Seitel and art by Mitzi J. Levin provides viewers an intimate glimpse into the private memories of twenty Alabama Holocaust survivors. Seitel and Levin spent hours visiting with each survivor and listening to their stories. Stories told began with life remembered before occupation and imprisonment and continue to the present in residences in Birmingham, Montgomery, Mobile and Opelika. Both artists provide bold, thought –provoking and moving paintings and photographs with text explaining the personal stories behind each piece. Survivor biographies and maps add historical dimension to this exhibit.
“Through the stories of these Alabama Holocaust survivors, we hope to impart this history, as well as a richer understanding of its impact on these individuals and their families, to a larger audience. View their pictures. Read their stories. Allow this exhibition to move you.” —Becky Seitel, Photographer, and Mitzi J. Levin, Artist –Darkness into Life
