PAGE 14 HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH "In Fitting Memory," a unique photographic exhibi- tion of Holocaust Memorials from around the world, will be on display at the Holo- caust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Central Florida, 851 North Maitland Avenue in Mait- land until September 30.A collection of specially com- missioned photographs taken in seven European countries, the United States and Israel by Ira Nowinski, the exhibi- tion introduces viewers to a broad array of memorials and monuments erected in re- membrance of the Holocaust. These include remnants and ruins from the camps, com- memorative sculptures (ab- stract and more traditional) in a variety of forms and materials "and monuments erected at to commemorate site-specific events. The design and content of theses memorials reflect national differences in his- toriography, ideology and culture, as well as in the styles and tradition of pub- lic art. Yet, despite variances in perspective and emphasis, these memorials collectively preserve the memory of the Holocaust and have become part of international civic culture over the past six decades. Nowinski is an indepen- dent photographer residing in San Francisco. His collec- tion of original photographs of Holocaust memorials is now permanently housed at Stanford University. A new catalogue of the collection will be published and made available for purchase at the Holocaust Memorial Center this fall. Ira Nowinski has stated "'T" m proud of my Polish Jew- ish heritage, we were almost killed to the last person, but we survived the Holocaust, and I can bear witness, with my name and photographs for future generations.""
