Pellissippi State Community College will host an exhibit on the lives of Oskar and Emilie Schindler, who put their own lives at risk to save 1,200 people from concentration camps during World War II.
The exhibit tells the story of the Schindlers’ lives — as made famous in the film “Schindler’s List” — using texts and photographs, many never published before.
The exhibit, open from Sept. 25 to Oct. 6, is free to attend. Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-6:30 p.m., Monday-Friday in the Bagwell Center for Media and Art Gallery, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.
During a reception from 3-5 p.m., Sept. 25, history instructor Amanda Carr-Wilcoxson will be on hand to briefly discuss the historical impact of the Schindlers and their actions.
The Oskar and Emilie Schindler Exhibition is part of The Arts at Pellissippi State, an annual arts series that includes music and theatre performances, cultural celebrations, lectures and fine arts exhibits. The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Tennessee Consortium for International Studies.
