PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A new exhibit at a northwest Portland museum is featuring the work of a 104-year-old photojournalist.

The exhibit at the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education features photographs by Ruth Gruber, following the plight of World War II refugees.

The photos span more than five decades and four continents.

“What we're bringing to Portland is the work of one of the great 20th century journalists who witnessed some of the most crucial events of the 20th century,” said Maya Benton”  “People will walk away seeing the power of photographs not just to document the world, but to change it.”

The exhibit is on a national tour and will be on display in Portland through June 13.
