13 January 2022 – 13 February 2022 all-day
Bedford Hall Gallery

The Office of Public Works in association with Holocaust Awareness Ireland present The Objects of Love, an exhibition of powerful mementoes that tell the story of one Jewish family before, during and after the Second World War. Opening in Dublin Castle’s Bedford Hall on 12 January, a fortnight before Holocaust Memorial Day, this poignant exhibition tells the fate of individual lives torn asunder in Nazi-occupied Poland and beyond.

Told through a curated collection of precious family objects, photographs and documents, Dublin based art dealer, Oliver Sears vividly brings to life this extreme edge of European history where his mother Monika and grandmother Kryszia are the beating hearts of an epic and intimate story of love, loss, and survival.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an audio narration and an illustrated booklet.

Location: Bedford Hall Gallery, Dublin Castle.

Exhibition dates: 13th January to 13th February 2022.

Opening times: Daily 10.00am – 5.00pm (closed 1 – 2)
