To commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2018, the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education presents an exhibit of reproductions of the drawings made by Zinovii Tolkatchev, a Soviet artist who accompanied the Red Army forces that liberated the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp on January 27, 1945. The exhibit also includes reproductions of a few drawings he made at the Russian-liberated Majdanek concentration camp outside of Lublin, Poland. Biographical information and excerpts from Tolkatchev's testimony complete the exhibit. All material comes from a virtual exhibit created by Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, in Jerusalem.
