Fargo, N.D. (WDAY TV) -A new museum exhibit in Fergus Falls is bringing the brutality of the Holocaust and strength of some Minnesota survivors back to life.

This month at the Otter Tail County Historical Museum, a month-long traveling exhibit called Transfer of Memory is taking over the walls.

37 pictures now hang, each showcasing a Holocaust survivor who settled in Minnesota or the Twin Cities area after escaping from Europe.

The portraits all include personal stories of survival, life, and hope written out beneath the images for the Fergus Falls community to read.

Chris Schuelke, museum executive director: “These are regular people. There could be your grandpa or my grandpa. But when you see the tattoos on the arms, the identification numbers, it really hits home. So this exhibit is good because it's not allowing people to forget the Holocaust.”

The portrait exhibit ends March 28.

You can get in to see it at the Museum for $5.
