BROOKLYN - An exhibit about deaf victims and survivors of the Holocaust and intended for deaf people has opened in Mill Basin.

The exhibit focuses on personal experiences and the challenges faced by observant Jews. It not only shares survivor stories, but welcomes the deaf community to learn more about the past.

Sholom Friedmann, the director of the Amud Aish Memorial Museum & Kleinman Holocaust Education Center, says these types of events are important to keep the culture alive.

This year, they hope to open the museum, which offers a view inside the victims' experiences for all ages.
