The Handmaid's Tale: an exhibit at Moffitt Library

Exhibit - Multimedia | September 5 – December 31, 2018 every day | Moffitt Undergraduate Library, 3rd Floor near Elevators

The new Moffitt Library exhibit explores the themes and antecedents of The Handmaid’s Tale, this year’s On the Same Page program selection. On exhibit are library materials and quotes that demonstrate that not only were we wrong to say “it can’t happen here” - it has already happened, all over the world: Berlin, Nazi Germany, Argentina, and yes, here in the US.

 UC Berkeley ID required for entrance to Moffitt Library.

For nearly two decades, Yaakov (Jacob) Benor-Kalter (1897-1969) traversed the Old City of Jerusalem, documenting renowned historical monuments, ambiguous subjects in familiar alleyways, and scores of “new Jews” building a new homeland. Benor-Kalter’s photographs smoothly oscillate between two worlds, and two Holy Lands, with one lens.
