Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Richard Ehrlich Holocaust Archives Series consists of sixteen prints of digital photographs that photographer Richard Ehrlich took of the archival holdings of the International Tracing Service (ITS), in 2007. In addition, there are print-outs of captions for the exhibit. The ITS is an archival center that houses sources for identifying and tracing the victims of the Nazi Holocaust. Ehrlich shot several hundreds of photographs, from which he gleaned fifty-four for a portfolio that first went on exhibit at the Craig Krull Gallery in Santa Monica, California, in 2008.
Born in 1938 in New York City, Richard Ehrlich received his undergraduate degree from Cornell in 1959 and then took his medical degree there in 1963, becoming a urologist. Moving to California, Ehrlich eventually practiced at the UCLA Medical Center. He turned his childhood interest in photography into an artistic vocation and began a second career as a photographer. Ehrlich has had numerous exhibits in the United States as well as internationally.
