ASYLUM / ASILO
the Jewish History Museum & Holocaust History Center’s 2019-2020 Contemporary Human Rights exhibition, seeks to weave a dialogue from the personal histories of individuals who have fled horrific situations in their home countries only to face an asylum system on the US-Mexico border turned into chaos by the government’s own making. The exhibition will be up at the Jewish History Museum & Holocaust History Center for the duration of the 2019-2020 season which concludes on May 31.
Asylum was developed in collaboration with Borderlands Public History Lab at the University of Texas at El Paso. The Jewish History Museum & Holocaust History Center have also developed a resource guide for more information about the ongoing situation and how US citizens can take action.
