Teaneck Resident Exhibits Holocaust-Themed Artwork in Hoboken

An exhibit of Holocaust-themed memorials and sculpture by Dr. Milton Ohring, a Teaneck resident and former Professor of Metallurgy and Materials Science at the Stevens Institute of Technology, is currently taking place in the Samuel C. Williams Library of Stevens Institute in Hoboken, New Jersey. The exhibit, entitled “The Holocaust in Metal and Stone,” is in response to the alarming increase of worldwide anti-Semitism as well as Holocaust forgetfulness, distortion and even denial as a result of the inevitable decline in the numbers of survivors and witnesses of the murder of six million Jews during the Second World War. Dr. Ohring has created these works to enable viewers never to forget the unprecedented events that occurred in this genocide. The piece “Burnt Offerings,” fabricated in stainless steel, is shown. The exhibit will run until July 1.

Stevens Institute is located in Hoboken, New Jersey on the Hudson river between the Lincoln Tunnel near its northern border, and the Holland Tunnel at its southern border. Once in Hoboken go to 9th Street and head east toward the Hudson river. As you enter the campus on 9th street go to the Stevens Center (the tallest building on campus), where the road curves around like a U-turn and heads back west on 8th street. Shortly you will reach the north parking area entrance on your left. The Samuel C. Williams library is located opposite the Stevens Center and adjacent to the parking lot. A more detailed Stevens campus map can be obtained from the Stevens website (www.stevens.edu) or from Google by keying in the words “stevens institute campus map.”

The exhibit is open any time the library is open, or virtually always. The library phone number is 201-216-5200.
