• Reminders: The Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education at 724 N.W. Davis St. features "To Bear Witness — Extraordinary Lives," through May 15. It's a partnership with The Immigrant Story, in collaboration with Jim Lommasson and NW Documentary, and it's a multimedia exhibition focused on the lives of 14 refugees who rebuilt their lives in Oregon. There are photographs, profiles and short films, featuring people from Austria, Bosnia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Germany, Hungary, Rwanda, Sudan, Syria and Tibet. Each story tells of survival of the individuals and generosity of others. The title "To Bear Witness" comes from Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel.
