Artists of the Holocaust: A Collection of Short Films will be screened at 4pm on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 on the Main Stage in the Scales Fine Arts Center.
In collaboration with Yad Vashem Museum in Israel, Wake Forest students produced short films on select artists of the Holocaust. These films tell the stories of men and women who created art under the most extraordinary and horrific circumstances, including those who were partisans and fought against the Nazis and others who were prisoners in concentration and slave-labor camps.
The screening is sponsored by The Humanities Institute at Wake Forest, The Documentary Film Program and IPLACe.
The Artists of the Holocaust films are part of the Imagination Project, a project funded by a Humanities Matters grant from the Humanities Institute.
