Holocaust exhibit at Arkansas Tech

The exhibit “Rescuers: Portraits of Moral Courage in the Holocaust” opens Wednesday at the Arkansas Tech University Museum in Russellville, according to a news release.

“Rescuers” is a collection of portraits of approximately 100 non-Jewish Europeans who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust taken by Gay Block, in a collaboration with Malka Drucker, in the late 1980s.

The exhibit was featured at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1992 and has been part of a traveling show for 11 years, according to the release.

The museum is at 1502 N. El Paso Ave. in Russellville. The exhibit will be on display through March.

Church trains disaster relief

Trinity United Methodist Church in Little Rock has been hosting a Disaster Relief Academy this week to train volunteers to aid in disaster response and recovery after natural disasters.

A news release stated that the academy, a four-day event ending today, is the result of a partnership between the Arkansas Conference of the United Methodist Church’s Disaster Response and Volunteers in Mission ministries; and the Church’s Committee on Relief.

The academy has focused on disaster response at the area level, early responses, long-term recovery and coordinating efforts among the church’s different levels.

“Everyone should be more aware of this important ministry — who it helps, how it helps and how it works in general,” said Byron Mann, co-coordinator for the conference’s Disaster Response and Volunteers in Mission ministries. “We hope and pray every local church will consider disaster response as a part of [its] ongoing ministry.”

CORRECTION: The exhibit “Rescuers: Portraits of Moral Courage in the Holocaust” opens Wednesday at the Arkansas Tech University Museum in Russellville. An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated when the exhibit would open.
