  • I went with my daughter and her boyfriend to see the Object Memory special exhibit. Beautiful, moving and powerful. Especially thought provoking at the holidays as a reflection on both the incredible evil and the resilience, love and generosity of which we humans are capable.
  • What a powerful and moving experience. The museum, which is very professional and thorough, focuses primarily on the roles and experiences of Jewish communities in northeast Ohio. The current exhibit about survivors of various genocides and their stories is as remarkable as it is gut-wrenching. I can't believe I didn't know about this museum; I'll return often.
