“Virtues of Memory: Six Decades of Holocaust Survivors’ Creativity”

Media Preview Tour April 8; New Exhibition Opens at Yad Vashem on Holocaust Remembrance Day, April 12, 2010

06 April 2010

Yad Vashem will open a unique new exhibition, “Virtues of Memory: Six Decades of Holocaust Survivors’ Creativity” on Monday, April 12, 2010, Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The first of its kind exhibition showcases the creative works of some 300 Holocaust survivors whose artistic expressions of their Holocaust experiences and memories are housed at Yad Vashem. Over the decades an incredible corpus of work has been amassed at Yad Vashem, offering a look at the myriad ways Holocaust survivors have struggled to express themselves artistically after the Holocaust. Joining memoirs, testimonies and film, these artworks form a crucial aspect of Holocaust commemoration, documentation and education.

A special media preview tour with the curator, Yehudit Shendar, will be held in English on Thursday, April 8, 2010 at 11:00. RSVP required, at 02 6443410/2.

“Virtues of Memory” will be displayed in the Yad Vashem Exhibitions Pavilion through April 2011, and opens to the public on April 13, 2010.
