East Amwell Museum, 1053 Old York Road, Ringoes, N.J., is open 1 to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
Hendrix is a 17-year-old student at Hunterdon Central Regional High School. She has a love of the arts, including photography and film, and aspires to become a director of cinematography. She also has a love for history and learning about the past.
In April,she, along with other Hunterdon Central students, set off on an unforgettable journey to Czechia and Poland, where they would see some of the horrors of the Holocaust.
Hendrix took this trip as an opportunity to record her journey, with her aptitude for photography and film, giving others a chance to experience what she saw.
In her works, she reflects some of the places and events she saw – for example the beauty of Prague, and the sadness and inhumanity of the concentration camps in Majdanek and Auschwitz.
