Join us as photographer, humanitarian, and philanthropist Judy Glickman Lauder speaks with Chris Boot, Executive Director of the Aperture Foundation, about her new book Beyond the Shadows: The Holocaust and the Danish Exception (Aperture, 2018).
Beyond the Shadows responds to the mass murder of Jews during the Holocaust, while telling the uplifting story of how the citizens and leadership of Denmark, under occupation and at tremendous risk, defied the Third Reich to transport the country’s Jews to safety in Sweden. The book tells the extraordinary experiences of the ordinary people, who are the subject of Glickman Lauder’s remarkable photographs.
With texts by Holocaust scholars Michael Berenbaum and Judith S. Goldstein, recollections by Danish Jewish survivors, and a previously unpublished text by Elie Wiesel, Beyond the Shadows demonstrates passionately what hate can lead to, and what can be done to stand in its path.
The discussion will be introduced by Adam Weinberg, Alice Pratt Brown Director of the Whitney Museum of American Art, and followed by a book signing and reception.
