"Darkness into Life," a traveling exhibit of art, photos and recollections of 20 Alabamians who survived the Holocaust is now online at the Birmingham Holocaust Education Committee's website.

Barbara Bonfield, the Committee's program coordinator, announced the launch of the website at a Sunday presentation by Ann Mollengarden at the N.E. Miles Jewish Day School about her summer trip to Holocaust related sites in Europe.

The exhibition was originally created by artist Mitzi J. Levin and photographer Becky Seitel, who interviewed survivors and collected and illustrated their stories. Since its launch in 2007, it has toured various museums and community centers in the state and is currently on display at the Parnell Memorial Library in Montevallo through Dec. 4.

The online version makes the gripping stories accessible to a wider audience, adding to the growing body of educational material on the volunteer group's website.

"We have and extraordinary website that has just opened," Bonfield said. "The ignorance of the Holocaust is prevalent and we are here to combat that ignorance."
