The Shoah Committee of the Jewish Federation of Ottawa invites you to join us for a narrated, virtual tour of  the exhibit Stars Without a Heaven – Children of Holocaust, with special guest, the preeminent visual storyteller, Yad VaShem. This exhibition is dedicated to the unique stories of children during the Holocaust. During a period when Jewish communities underwent social and familial upheaval, children living in this reality essentially lost their childhood.
The drawings, poems, letters and toys displayed in this exhibition demonstrate the unique capacity of children to hold on to the forces of life, creativity, imagination, and optimism, despite facing dire circumstances.
A mobile printed exhibit of Stars Without a Heaven will be showcased at the Greenberg Families Library from November 1- 8, and, in collaboration with CHES, this exhibit will circulate in local Ottawa high schools throughout November.
