The Most Innocent Victims

The story of Anne Frank is the most well-known story of a young Holocaust victim, but approximately 1.5 million of the six million Jews who died during the Holocaust were children. Despite the brutality they witnessed and endured, many of these children found temporary escape from their lives through art. Every Child Has a Name, an exhibition on display through March 18 at the Dallas Holocaust Museum (211 N. Record St.), features replications of drawings and paintings by children who lived in Nazi-controlled ghettos, and the collection also includes works that are part of No Child's Play, a touring exhibition from Yad Vashem: World Holocaust Center in Jerusalem. The exhibition is on display from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The museum is closed this Saturday and Sunday for the holidays. Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and students. Call 214-741-7500 or visit dallasholocaustmuseum.org.
Mondays-Thursdays, 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Dec. 27. Continues through March 18, 2011
