Windows of the World – The Power of Postcards Exhibit features postcards from the collection of Karin Senft. Karin has been fascinated with postcards since she was a young girl growing up in Braunschweig, Germany. The internet did not exist at the time she started her collection, so the postcards gave her a view of the world that could only be found in books. Karin has more than 19,000 postcards from 90 different countries. Some postcards in the exhibit are over 100 years old, dating as far back as 1908.

This exhibit also features photographs highlighting the international experiences of the Office of International Affairs' staff.
