Center for Faith & the Arts presents

‘Modern Remembrance of Things Past,’ an evening of modern memories of the Holocaust 

C enter for Faith & the Arts will host the exhibit opening reception on Feb. 9 from 6-9 p.m. in Gallery Two, featuring the art of Lisa Casperson, inspired by a trip to Dachau.

The program, beginning at 7 p.m., consists of a short talk by Casperson on her memories of that visit.

In addition, Concord resident Jack Stein will speak. Stein is the son of Morris Stein, a Holocaust survivor who passed away at age 85 in 2014.

Jack has been able to visit the last Nazi concentration camp that his father was at and a specific camp created by the British to collect displaced and orphaned children of the Holocaust where his father stayed before going to
England and then to Israel.

Jack has been working with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to collect records available about his father through the International Tracing Service, as well as to get Morris’s story on the Remember Me? website.

There will also be a slide presentation on the Dachau concentration camp.

CFA’s programming complements the upcoming production of “The Diary of Anne Frank” by the St. Thomas Players on Feb. 23-25 and March 2-4, at Lee Street theatre.

Center for Faith & the Arts is at 207 W. Harrison St., behind and below Haven Lutheran Church. The reception, program and exhibit are free, but donations are gladly accepted to support the center’s ongoing work. Learn more at 704-647-0999, http://faithart.org/ or www.leestreet.org
