HBI / The Power of Art: Preserving Memory, Teaching the Holocaust, 9/13/2023
From Terri Preuss
Join HBI for The Power of Art: Preserving Memory, Teaching the Holocaust, a panel discussion with Prof. Barbara Wallace Grossman, Author Rachel Kadish, U.S. State Department Special Envoy for Holocaust Issues Ellen Germain, with HBI Director Lisa Fishbayn Joffe as moderator.
How can art help us better understand the Holocaust and discuss its implications for today? Our panelists discuss HBI’s art exhibition, Lives Eliminated, Dreams Illuminated, an immersive exhibition of painting and music in the context of efforts to commemorate and educate about the Holocaust. Painter Lauren Bergman and composer Ella Milch-Sheriff honor young women and girls murdered in the Holocaust by using art to imagine the lives they might have led.
