The Holocaust and the Arts Series: Keynote Speaker Ms. Jodi Elowitz

Join us for a survey of the various types of art produced in the camps and ghettos, such as “official,” which was created on the orders of the perpetrators to be used for propaganda, “tolerated” or unofficial artwork which was sometimes commissioned or produced by the artist-inmates for sanctioned cultural events, and “clandestine” work that was made either as a form of resistance or as an act of bearing witness. In addition to the artwork Ms. Elowitz will also provide background on the lives of the artists who were responsible for creating these works. All programs in this Holocaust Educational Series are free and held at the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center. More information at: www.HolocaustCenterMilwaukee.org
