There are over 120,000 images in the Emile Bocian Collection, which is currently undergoing conservation treatment at an off-site facility. This selection of images includes additional photos that had been brought to the Center for Jewish History in January 2020 in preparation for this exhibit, as well as several more that had been digitized by MOCA before the fire in their archives.
