Artists of the Holocaust: A Collection of Short Films

Artists of the HolocaustPlease join us for a screening of Artists of the Holocaust: A Collection of Short Films on February 12 at 4:00 pm at MainStage Theatre in the Scales Fine Arts Center.

In collaboration with Yad Vashem Museum in Israel, DFP students and Wake Forest undergraduates 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.  

In addition to the film screening, the program will feature a performance from the upcoming play Embers and Stars.  The play, written by Wake Forest professor Cindy Gendrich and Looking Glass Theatre’s Andrew White, is based on the film The Last Flight of Petr Ginz, by DFP Director Sandra Dickson and Churchill Roberts, and on The Diary of Petr Ginz, edited by Chava Pressburger, Translation by Elena Lappin.
