Resistance + Rescue: Photographs by Judy Ellis Glickman

Resistance + Rescue: Photographs by Judy Ellis Glickman

Friday, October 5, 2018 - 10:00 am to Sunday, November 25, 2018 - 4:00 pm

Through images and symbols, the horrors of the Holocaust are familiar to us all. Yet, too few of us are aware of the remarkable story of the flight of the Jews out of Denmark to safety in Sweden in the fall of 1943, seventy-five years ago. The exhibition of photographs by Judy Ellis Glickman reopens a time in our history when the bravery of a few overcame the brutality of so many.

Without words, Glickman tells the story of the rescue through pictorial observations. Using subtle manipulations of the photographic process, she captures the many emotions of the rescue, as well as a stark reminder of what Hitler’s Final Solution did achieve. Glickman also presents the concentration camps as cruel, empty places. In these images, we are reminded that without the courage of the Danish government and its people, the fate of Denmark’s Jews would have been similar to that of so many of their European neighbors.

This exhibit and related events (including an opening reception on from 5:30 to 7:00 on October 5 and a three-part film series) are a collaboration of the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education and the Hearst Center for the Arts.

Location: Hearst Center for the Arts, 304 West Seerley Blvd, Cedar Falls, IA

Cello Lessons: What We Learn From One-on-One Teaching

Cello Lessons: What We Learn From One-on-One Teaching

Friday, October 19, 2018 - 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Jonathan Chenoweth leads a conversation about applying the opportunities of individual instruction to other sorts of teaching. What do lessons and classes – or practicing and studying -- share? Can we help students avoid perfection? Cultivate humility? Pick up the right tool(s)? Know when to “think” and when to “do”? Maybe our thoughts will run to office hours, embodied intelligence, and the amazing pencil.
