When you've lost everything, a single object can take on extraordinary meaning.
That's the message behind a new exhibit at the Illinois Holocaust Museum, called "Stories of Survival."
Shoshana Buchholz-Miller from the museum and third generation survivor of the Armenian Genocide, Mark Akgulian joined ABC7 Saturday morning.
The exhibit, titled "Stories of Survival: Object. Image. Memory," features 60 items that Holocaust and genocide survivors brought to America with them.
"Stories of Survival" will be on display through January 13, 2019.
