Strength of the Creative Spirit

Since liberation in 1945, over 30,000 pieces of Holocaust victim artwork have been documented. Created clandestinely in camps, ghettos, and in hiding, these pieces of art demonstrate the human capacity for resiliency and willpower. This art was created in unthinkably dire circumstances, and supports the notion that the process of creating art is healing.

Artists of varying ages and nationalities imprisoned throughout Europe during the Holocaust, turned to art making as a means of expression and protest. Elizabeth Hlavek, Clinical Professional Art Therapist, will explore art created during the Holocaust and how it demonstrates resiliency and humanity regardless of the oppressive conditions that created it.
