40 Leon St.
Holocaust and Genocide Awareness Week Opening Reception, featuring a presentation by 2022-2023 Holocaust Legacy Foundation Gideon Klein Scholar Ethan Rogers ’25, Tracing Expressiveness: Illustrated Emotions in Terezin’s Secret Synagogue.
The Secret Synagogue of Terezin was created in the Nazi camp out of a hidden storage room, and largely unknown until after the fall of communism in 1989, when the building’s owner shared its existence with visitors to the camp, for a fee. Ethan Rogers undertook extensive research on the Synagogue and its creator, the artist Artur Berlinger. He will present his research along with his virtual re-creation of the Synagogue as it probably looked while in use in the Nazi camp, and discuss the artistic and spiritual meaning of the decorative murals.
Ethan Rogers is a third-year student pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Architecture with a minor in Urban Landscape Studies. He grew up on Long Island, New York, and is an avid foodie and city-goer who enjoys listening to comedy specials and going to Broadway shows. Around Boston he is involved with Northeastern Hillel and the architecture club AIAS, volunteers at Boston Building Resources, and enjoys walking on the Charles River Esplanade.
