With more than 12,000 works, the Yad Vashem Art Collection is the most comprehensive collection of Holocaust art in the world. The Collection is composed of three main sections: the first consists of works produced prior to World War II and commemorates artists murdered in the Holocaust; the second comprises works from the Holocaust period, created by artists persecuted by the Nazis and their collaborators from the rise of the Nazi regime until the liberation of the camps; the third is dedicated to artwork created after the Holocaust by survivors, witnesses to the events of the period, or by other artists who felt compelled to give visual expression to this subject.
