Art & Healing in Times of Crisis: National Holocaust Remembrance Day
April 12, 2018, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PMFree
Join us for a powerful lecture on finding hope in times of crisis, presented by Dr. Lucinda Sloan.
“Within purgatory of German concentration camps there was hope. And the hope was in art and music created and performed by the Jewish children and adults interred in the camps. Through the arts their spirits were liberated and time of transcendence existed outside of the normal time of dying, starving, and cruelty. Art became a tool for documentation, remembrance of happiness, sedition and liberation. The spirit could not be imprisoned and thus the will to live survived.” Dr. Sloan.
The above image comes from a young survivor of the Terezin Ghetto who studied art with Friedl Dicker-Brandeis.
“Do not think of anything – you are happy now
There is light beyond the walls
The spirit flies within darkness”
