Tragedy, for some, can be a roadblock; but for others, it's a part of the journey. Dr. Robert O. Fisch is a Minnesotan pediatrician, visual artist and Holocaust survivor. He is a living example of overcoming catastrophic life circumstances to reach joy and success.

This is the theme of the new exhibit "The Value of One Life," conceived by Dr. Fisch and developed by the Minnesota History Center.
