Event Description:

Learn how refugees have escaped persecution to come to the crossroads of the U.S in this interactive event that includes an exhibition highlighting post-WWII resettlement efforts, information fair, reception, and panel discussion.

Extended hours and free admission to the Eugene and Marilyn Glick History Center will allow attendees to view You Are There 1950: Making a Jewish Home, an exhibit that tells the story of the Kaplans, a family which fled the Holocaust and made a new home in Indianapolis. This story, other historical stories, and contemporary stories of resettlement in Indiana will be featured in this event which explores why people leave their homes and how service organizations work to ease the burden of that transition. Additionally, attendees will learn how they can become part of the effort to make a difference in their community.
