Florida Museum of Holocaust opened exhibition of George Floyd's death

1055

Name of criminal killed by police, George Floyd, will be immortalized since an American Holocaust Museum in Florida decided to open an exhibition about his death.

The Holocaust Memorial Resources and Education Center in Florida opened an exhibition entitled “Uprooting Prejudice: Faces of Change” and has a collection of 45 photographs of people reacting to George Floyd’s death from chokehold while being in Minneapolis police custody earlier this year.  

The photographs were made by Minneapolis photographer John Noltner.

“When George Floyd was killed that happened 11.6 miles north of my house and I knew with the piece of my mind’s goal being to hear voices that aren’t always heard as well as they should be. I knew that I wanted to go to that site,” Noltner said.

The collection also includes an image of father of Michael Brown Jr., who was fatally shot by police in Missouri in 2014.

Lisa Bachman, assistant director of the Holocaust Center, said: “We have produced this so that people can come and look these individuals in the eye. So you come face to face with people, so you can really experience the feelings that they were feeling.”
