SURVIVING EVIL: THE PICTORIAL LANGUAGE OF SARA ATZMON
< Back

26 Feb 2014 - 04 May 2014

The Hong Kong Holocaust and Tolerance Centre, the University Museum and Art Gallery and Goethe-Institut Hong Kong are organizing a major exhibition in Hong Kong of artworks by Sara Atzmon, a Shoah (Holocaust) survivor who was born in Hungary and now resides in Israel.  Ms. Atzmon’s artworks, many of which are large-scale, highly impactful paintings, reflect the artist’s memories of her horrible experiences during the Shoah.  In 1944, Ms. Atzmon was first deported to Strasshof and from there she was sent to Bergen-Belsen under terrible circumstances.

As an adult, Ms. Atzmon became a talent painter dedicated to use her, often very dramatic and explicit, paintings, to bring awareness to the cruel times in our fairly recent past, and to educate a young generation to treasure and practice tolerance, and foster understanding and compassion between people of different religions and cultural backgrounds. We welcome Ms. Atzmon here in Spring and invite her to lecture and to engage with our members and friends, university students and high school pupils.

For booking and further information on guided tours, please go to Lectures and Events.
