After the War:  Recovery, Relief, and Return, 1945-1949

on view through January 31, 2016

The
far-reaching impact of World War II resulted in massive destruction,
decimation, deprivation, and the unparalleled displacement of people
across and far beyond the European continent. In commemoration of the
70th anniversary of the end of the war, After the War uses photographs,
artifacts, and archival material to document and provide insights into
the end of the war and post-war disorder and revitalization in Europe
and the United States. Selected photographs from the Roman Vishniac
Archive at the International Center of Photography in New York are
brought together with materials from American Jewish Historical Society
and Leo Baeck Institute, whose collections reside at the Center for
Jewish History.

After the War has been supported by a generous grant from The David Berg Foundation.
