Lost Stories, Found Images: Portraits of Jews in Wartime Amsterdam by Annemie Wolff
German-born Dutch photographer Annemie Wolff took formal portraits of Amsterdams Jews at a time of great danger both for her and for her subjects during the German occupation of The Netherlands. Some of these photos were taken for false papers to aid these individuals in their escape. Other images were taken as mementos for friends, relatives in camps or of remembrances of children when parents went into hiding. These previously lost works, rediscovered in 2008 by Dutch photo historian Simon Kool, help illuminate an untold story of Jewish life in Amsterdam during the Holocaust. This exhibition is supported by the Van Thyn lecture series, which honors Rose and Louis Van Thyn, Holocaust survivors who dedicated themselves to retelling their stories so that people would not forget or repeat those horrors.

Shreveport's progressiveness can be seen at a glance according to this 100-year-old Chamber of Commerce album from the private collection of Shreveport educator Edward Chopin. This exhibition, created with the Shreveport Historic Preservation Society, will feature a selection from its more than 300 anonymous, stunning gelatin silver photographs showcasing Shreveport's businesses and labor force in 1918. This exhibit is partially underwritten by the Attaway Professorships in Civic Culture Program and the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities.
