Developed and produced by the Museum of Jewish Heritage — A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

Steven Fischler and Joel Sucher of Pacific Street Films first brought the subject of this exhibition to the attention of the general public with the documentary From Swastika to Jim Crow. The film was based on pioneering research by Gabrielle Edgcomb, and shown on PBS. Steven Fischler then joined with the Museum to create this exhibition.

This exhibition is made possible through major funding from the Leon Levy Foundation.

Additional support provided by the Helen Bader Foundation; The Lupin Foundation; The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation; public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency; the Alpern Family Foundation; and the Charles and Mildred Schnurmacher Foundation.
