Nashville State Community College to Host Exhibit Showcasing the Life of Oskar and Emilie Schindler
NASHVILLE, Tenn. March 7, 2018 – Nashville State Community College (NSCC) Main Campus will host a traveling exhibit showcasing the life of Oskar and Emilie Schindler inside the Health and Humanities Building Art Gallery. The exhibit, sponsored by the Tennessee Consortium for International Studies (TnCIS), will be on display from March 13, 2018 through April 2, 2018.
This extraordinary exhibit highlights the life of the Schindler’s, describing their life from childhood, their marriage and the perilous task of helping over 1,000 Jews escape brutality of the Nazi regime. Stephen Spielberg, the American director of the movie "Schindler's List," made Oskar Schindler renowned worldwide. Produced in 1993, the movie's dramatic depiction of the rescue of Jewish prisoners during WWII, won seven Oscars. For over four and a half years, Oskar Schindler and his wife Emilie put their own lives at risk to save Jews from the Nazi's atrocious despotism and certain death at concentration camps.
Living under a ruthless dictatorship, it was their profound humane principles that made them behave in favor of their fellow humans. The courage the Schindler’s showed is admirable and serves as an inspiring example of moral and civic courage even today.
This exhibition features 30 panels depicting the eventful story of Oskar and Emilie's life using documents and pictures, some of which have not been published before.
Opening Reception is in the Health and Humanities Building – Art Gallery 1st Floor on March 13, 2018 from 4:00pm to 6:30pm
Health and Humanities Building Exhibit Gallery 1st floor open:
Campus closed on Friday, March 30
