For some people, the Holocaust is just part of history, but for some others it is still part of their daily lives.

That is why for over three years, photographer Robert Heller has been documenting images and stories of Holocaust victims who live throughout Tennessee.

Now, these important and compelling images can be seen in a new exhibit at the East Tennessee History Center in Downtown Knoxville.

“As much as we learn about (the Holocaust), there is really nothing like listening to the story of someone who was there, who was a victim or witness to,” Heller says of the survivors he photographed.
