Lost Stories, Found Images: Portraits of Jews in Wartime Amsterdam by Annemie Wolff (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

German-born Dutch photographer Annemie Wolff took formal portraits of Amsterdam’s Jews at a time of great danger both for her and for her subjects during the German occupation of The Netherlands. Some of these photos were taken for false papers to aid these individuals in their escape. Other images were taken as mementos for friends, relatives in camps or of remembrances of children when parents went into hiding. These previously lost works, rediscovered in 2008 by Dutch photo historian Simon Kool, help illuminate an untold story of Jewish life in Amsterdam during the Holocaust. This exhibition is supported by the Van Thyn lecture series, which honors Rose and Louis Van Thyn, Holocaust survivors who dedicated themselves to retelling their stories so that people would not forget or repeat those horrors.

Shreveport Philosophical Forum: Religion
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Smith Room 107

People have strong opinions about religion. Some see it as a relic of a primitive past. Others couldn't imagine a purposeful life without it. Religion encourages violence, sexism, and racism, and it encourages those trying to create peace and justice. Religion can give people hope, strength, and community, just as it can be used to manipulate and exploit. Religion divides us, and a can be the impetus to overcome division. This month, we will examine religion. What value does religion have for individuals or society? Should religion wither away or will we always need religion? Does being religious require we believe in God, an afterlife, or the supernatural, or can one participate in religious rituals without belief? Can one choose to believe, or try to believe? Is faith a virtue or a vice? What is a religion, anyway?
