A unique multidisciplinary Holocaust exhibition.

Using strong black and white portraiture and original music, selected episodes from survivors' experiences are presented in a brief, compelling format. Shadows of Shoah is the work of NZ photographer and composer Perry Trotter with research and interviews by Sheree Trotter. The work is based on interviews of Holocaust survivors from NZ, Australia, USA and Israel.

An on-site educator, trained at the International School for Holocaust Studies, will be available 7 - 18 September. Classes are encouraged to make bookings through the YMCA office. Bookings or information:

Admission is free but a koha of $2 per person is suggested.
