Absence of Humanity
Permanent Exhibition

Before each of our Bearing Witness events, free tours are given of the Absence of Humanity exhibition. Show up early and make sure you can join!

The exhibition serves as the perfect environment for our unique educational opportunities related to the Holocaust. The Weinberg Center Summer Institute and We Are Here! both take advantage of the unique prospective showcased in our Holocaust Galleries. 


This permanent exhibition presents a detailed history of the events that led up to the Holocaust, the atrocities perpetrated by the Nazis during World War II, and those events that took place in its wake. In this highly informative Holocaust museum exhibition, the narrative of this dark time in human history is put forth in the voices of those who survived and made new lives in Atlanta. Absence of Humanity: The Holocaust Years, 1933-1945 was designed by local architect and Holocaust survivor Ben Hirsch, and features historic photographs, personal memorabilia, family documents, and videotaped interviews with Atlanta-area survivors.

Experience the years 1933-1945 through the stories and mementos of Atlanta area Holocaust Survivors as presented in Absence of Humanity. For more information on our group rates and scheduling your visit, please visit the Group Tours Page.
