Multiply by Six Million
June 14, 2010
The traveling exhibit currently at the Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County features personal portraits and stories of Holocaust survivors who call California home. Noted photographer Evvy Eisen undertook a 15-year project to create photographic portraits of survivors living in California and to collect their personal stories. The resulting exhibition, Multiply by Six Million: Portraits and Stories of Holocaust Survivors, offers viewers a personal perspective on one of the defining events of the 20th century. Survivors tell their stories in hopes that the seeds of today’s intolerance and bigotry are recognized in time to present tomorrow’s genocides.

The exhibit describes the horrors that the survivors experienced in Europe during the Holocaust and how they then came to the United States to create meaningful lives and contribute to society in their adopted country. Survivor Frank Roubicek shares, “The horror years of the wartime taught me how to appreciate the basic values of life and to fully appreciate the good things it has to offer.” Multiply by Six Million includes 37 stunning black and white photographs and is accompanied by a 24-minute DVD of survivors’ stories. Interpretive text allows visitors to understand historical events in Europe leading up to the Holocaust and contemplate current concerns about intolerance and genocide.

On the evening of Thursday, June 24th, photographer Evvy Eisen will present a program at the museum featuring the DVD and talking about the project. A brief reception at 7:00 p.m. will precede the 7:30 program. Admission is free.

The exhibit tour was organized by the California Exhibition Resources Alliance (CERA), with support from photographer Evvy Eisen. CERA is a network of professionally operated museums and cultural organizations that collaborate to create and tour smaller, affordable, high quality exhibitions that enhance civic engagement and human understanding. CERA is generously supported by The James Irvine Foundation, the William Randolph Hearst Foundation, and the California Council for the Humanities.

The exhibit will be on display at the Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County through August 1st. The museum is located at 1333 Butte House Road in Yuba City. Open hours are Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call the museum at (530) 822-7141.
