- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Just wanted to let listeners know that there is a moving exhibit up at the Oregon Jewish Museum that pertains directly to this topic. The subject of storytelling is addressed through the letters and documents preserved by a survivor of a Nazi labor camp in Poland. Her daughter, when presented with the collection from her mother, had to decide what format to present her mother's story in. Was it to be a book? A film? a lecture? She chose to create this exhibit, using reproductions of letters between Sala at the labor camp and her family members who were not interned. The exhibit is called Letters to Sala and it is open through June 6 and the Oregon Jewish Museum at 1953 NW Kearney Street in Portland (website ojm.org)
