13 Drivers' Licenses is a portable exhibit that tells the individual stories of thirteen Jewish citizens who were persecuted during the Nazi regime in Lichtenfels, Germany. The story behind this exhibit is extraordinary. After a discovery was made in an old building in the small Bavarian village of Lichtenfels of thirteen driving licenses that once belonged to Jewish citizens, these licenses were handed over to a local high school teacher. The teacher decided to seize this rare opportunity as a way to ignite a research project for his students. The students for the next several months diligently worked on this project until they were able to locate all of the familial descendants. The students reached out to these families and notified them about their findings. In this compelling lecture and accompanying pop-up exhibition, Lisa Salko will recount how the high schoolers got in touch with her and how she traveled to Germany to unveil a lost chapter of her family history.

*** Please note all guests must provide proof of vaccination for COVID 19 or a negative PCR test taken within 7 days of the event.
