Discussion Panel Wednesday, February 4, 2009, 7PM

Moderated by Dr. David G. Marwell, Museum director, with Clifford Chanin,

“Photos don’t normally appear on this page. But it’s time for all of us to look squarely at the victims of our indifference.” –Nicholas Kristof, The New York Times

Does the representation of atrocity provoke dissent, engender compassion, or
merely elicit a momentary shudder before it is forgotten? Inspired by Susan
Sontag’s Regarding the Pain of Others, the panelists will examine the impact
of horrific images on our contemporary world, and how and when they should
be used.

$10 adults, $7 students/seniors, $5 members

Presented at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in conjunction with The Shooting of Jews in Ukraine: Holocaust by Bullets.
