The Mennonite Heritage Centre (MHC) Gallery at Canadian Mennonite University in Winnipeg is getting ready for what will be a very interesting exhibit: Synagogues in Germany: A Virtual Reconstruction. The exhibit is an extraordinary interactive display featuring recreations of synagogues destroyed in Nazi Germany in the years prior to World War 2.
The MHC Gallery is one of only three currently scheduled stops in Canada. The others will be in Toronto and Vancouver. Winnipeg is the first.
The University of Manitoba's Dr. Adam Fuller and Dr. Stephan Jaeger worked with Gallery Curator Ray Dirks to bring the exhibit here which opens today.
Morning Show Co-Host Chris spoke with Dr. Muller about the story Synagogues in Germany: A Virtual Reconstruction tells.
Synagogues in Germany: A Virtual Reconstruction extensively uses technology to visually show what the synagogues looked like. Dr. Muller explains,
Gallery Curator Ray Dirks was asked it made sense for MHC to host this exhibit.
Synagogues in Germany: A Virtual Reconstruction is now open at Mennonite Heritage Centre Gallery through March 4th. The exhibit will be open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.; Tuesday, 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., and Saturday & Sunday 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Other evenings for group visits can be arranged, as can guided tours including for school groups. Just give the gallery a call to arrange.
