Sweet Home Sweet: A Story of Survival, Memory and Returns

100 The Grove Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90036
May 21, 3 PM - 4:30 PM — ends Dec 31, 2023
Holocaust Museum LA presents the United States debut of “Sweet Home Sweet,” a moving exhibition of rarely seen photographs by Richard Ores that documents remarkable glimpses of both pre-World War II life in Krakow, Poland, and life in the Krakow Ghetto during the Holocaust. Originating at the Galicia Museum in Krakow, “Sweet Home Sweet” opens at the museum May 21 and will be on exhibit until Dec. 31, 2023. These historic photos have never been displayed before in the U.S.

In addition to the photographs, which were buried in a jar and unearthed in the Plaszow Concentration Camp (the camp of “Schindler’s List”), the exhibition features interviews with Ores’ family as well as family artifacts, additional historical artifacts and films. Holocaust Museum LA also will feature artifacts on loan from the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, including pages from the Academy Award-winning “Schindler’s List” script, a photograph of Liam Neeson (who played Oskar Schindler) and director Steven Spielberg on set, and an original movie poster from the film.
