The Anguish of Liberation as Reflected in Art

The Anguish of Liberation as Reflected in Art

January 1-December 31, 2017

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. The main theme of the exhibition is comprised of the artworks and the personal story behind each of them. The exhibit comes from Yad Vashem, Israel.
