Anguish of Liberation As Reflected In Art 

       

The exhibit will be on display during all our August events.

Please check event listings below for each location and time.

 

This exhibition features 11 artworks that were created immediately after the liberation and up until 1947. The exhibition attempts to investigate how survivors reacted to the liberation through art. When liberation finally arrived, the survivors found themselves torn between their desire to return to life and their need to face the devastation and mourn. As artist Jakob Zim declared: “I live with the shadow and create with the light.” His evocative words exemplify that for the survivors their choice to paint epitomized their renewed embrace of life. The exhibition is based on the Yad Vashem Art Collection.
