Roth “entered a tunnel” that led her to war-ravaged countries all over the world to capture images of female survivors, to “read the story of war through their faces. I was possessed,” she says. What she learned is that “war shows up men’s weaknesses and women’s strengths. Natural caretakers, women pick up the pieces.”

Roth’s quest is chronicled in an exhibition, One Person Crying: Women and War, which debuted in 2012 at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles. The museum also commissioned her to photograph Holocaust survivors who volunteer there, and a collection of those portraits, titled “Witness to Truth,” is on permanent display.”

UCLA Magazine reviews the project in “Picture This: Women and War.”
