About the Exhibit:

Faces of Survival

April 15, 2015 - March 6, 2016

UTSA graduate and honor students have produced the new "Faces of Survival" exhibit for display at the Institute of Texan Cultures. The class used the Holocaust as a model to explore the conditions which can lead to genocide at any time, in any place: Germany, Cambodia, Armenia, Rwanda, Guatemala and other nations.
 
A concentration camp uniform is among the artifacts to be displayed. Student researchers have collected accounts of the atrocities targeting ethnic, political or undesirable classes or groups, and photographs documenting the end result. The Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio has supplemented the students’ findings with additional artifacts and materials.
 
"Faces of Survival" explains how hatred, intolerance and discrimination become pre-conditions for mass murder. The students highlight the voices and faces of the victims and recognize that there can be no victims without perpetrators and bystanders.
