Two Exhibits on View at the Florida Holocaust Museum

The Florida Holocaust Museum is proud to present:

 

Adam and Eve

Recent Paintings by Samuel Bak

On view through August 26, 2012

 

Samuel Bak was born in 1933 in Vilna, Poland, and was recognized from an early age as possessing extraordinary artistic talent.  As Vilna came under German occupation in 1940, Bak and his family moved into the Vilna ghetto, and later to a labor camp, from which he was smuggled and given refuge in a monastery.  At the end of the war, his mother and he were the only members of his extensive family still alive.

 

Bak, now 76, has spent his life dealing with the artistic expression of the destruction and dehumanization which make up his childhood memories.  He speaks about what are deemed to be the unspeakable atrocities of the Holocaust.  He has created a visual language to remind the world of its most desperate moments.

 

Peace Should Not Be This Fragile:  A Portrait of Panzi

On view through July 1, 2012

 

Through the artwork of area students and Philadelphia-based sculptor Peter Frantz, visitors to the Florida Holocaust Museum will learn about the humanitarian crisis and the vibrant culture imperiled by violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
