CHGS Photo Exhibit: Maxine Rude Displaced Europe 1945-1946 on display at the Holocaust Memorial and Resource Education Center of Florida

November 1- January 12, 2012

The Holocaust Memorial and Resource Education Center of Florida are displaying the work of photographer Maxine Rude. Rude was a photographer for the United States Army and then for the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA). The organization was formed to help the approximately 21 million people displaced throughout war-torn Europe.

The CHGS owned exhibit consists of Rude's 69 Original photographs of the DP-Displaced Persons camps for Jews and other nationalities established in Germany and Austria at the end of World War II.

The center is located in Maitland Florida and is dedicated to combating anti-Semitism, racism and prejudice with the ultimate goal of developing a moral and just community through its extensive outreach of educational and cultural programs. Using the lessons of the Holocaust as a tool, the Center teaches the principles of good citizenship to thousands of people of all ages, religions and backgrounds each year.
