A Holocaust museum in Florida is facing backlash over the opening of a George Floyd exhibit, whose death in police custody earlier this year sparked months of rioting and protests across the United States.
“A new exhibit at the Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center in Maitland features powerful and inspiring photos taken in the wake of George Floyd’s death,” Orlando 6 reported.
The man who photographed the subjects in the exhibit, John Nolter, visited the location where Floyd’s death took place, taking photos of people reacting to Floyd’s death.
Lisa Bachman of The Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center of Florida said in a statement: “You don’t just see this exhibit. You feel it. The expressions and thoughts of each person photographed tells a story that has a very universal message. It is one that can heal and bring us together. It shows us we are not alone in our thinking.”
