Boston College Remembers Jesuit Martyrs

The Boston College Chronicle recently spotlighted the efforts of BC to remember the Jesuit martyrs of El Salvador through an art exhibit now on display on BC's campus. The exhibit, titled "One Night in November," is

on display through Jan. 7 in the main lobby of O’Neill Library, [and] was co-curated by Michael Burke ’18, who was hired by Burns Library Conservator Barbara Adams Hebard to work with her on its preparation over the summer in her conservation lab. O’Neill Library Conservation and Preservation Specialist Francis Bates also worked on the display.
 

“One Night in November” comprises numerous books – including those featuring biographies of the Jesuit martyrs – several photographs, relevant Heights articles and other related materials, along with background information on the slayings.
