Visions of the Holocaust Exhibit opens in Alvin Sherman Library

The Alvin Sherman Library will host the Visions of the Holocaust exhibit from Oct. 22, 2018 to Jan. 28, 2019. This exhibit will feature a set of colorized images from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center. The original black and white images were colorized by artist Yusuf Tolga Unker.

“The vast majority of images that were taken in the 1930s and 1940s were black and white images. Very often, what people will do is look at them say how sad and they will continue walking. On the other hand, when you put these pictures in color, the images become far more impactful to the viewer. You end up having the emotion and the feeling that the people in those images would want you to have,” said Craig Weiner, whom the Craig Weiner and Barbara Weiner Holocaust Reflection Center at NSU is named after.

“It’s an extraordinary exhibit. There has been no exhibit like this in South Florida in the past.”

NSU Researcher joins Study of Tiger Genetics

Stephen O’Brien, a research scientist in NSU’s Halmos College of Natural Sciences and former chief scientific officer at the Theodosius Dobzhansky Center for Genome Bioinformatics at St. Petersburg State University, has joined a team of scientists studying tiger genetics in efforts to aid conservation efforts. “Tigers are rapidly headed for extinction in the wild, and the loss seen over the past few decades is increasing and is happening in spite of intense conservation interest, surveillance, legal protection, and expenditure,” O’Brien said in a news release from the NSU newsroom.
