This exhibition provides a glimpse into art created during the Holocaust in ghettos, camps, forests, and while in hiding.
The artworks reflect the tension between the artists’ need to document the terrible events they endured and their desire to break free through art, and escape into the realms of beauty, imagination, and faith. Created under inhumane conditions in the utmost secrecy, the largely graphical works attest to the power of the human spirit in the face of adversity and death, and to the conflict between the reality of the Holocaust and an imaginary counter-world.
These artworks, from Yad Vashem’s Art Collection, stand as testimony to the strength of the human spirit that refuses to surrender
