Lunch and Learn: Artists & the Holocaust: Documentation, Memory, Elegy

January 18, 2024 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Graphic to go with text for Janie Cohen talk

Janie Cohen, past Director of UVM’s Fleming Museum, will speak about the work of a number of artists who experienced the Holocaust directly or indirectly and the varied relationships of their experience to their art. Cohen will discuss, among others, Henry Ross, who clandestinely photographed life in the Lodz ghetto while serving as the Jewish Council’s official photographer, and Hannelore Baron, a New York artist who witnessed Kristallnacht as a child and escaped Germany with her family.

About OZ’s Lunch and Learns

We gather at Ohavi Zedek’s Social Hall as an in-person event from noon to 1:30. (We are not using Zoom unless conditions change.)

A delicious lunch will be offered. Monthly speakers will cover a wide range of topics. Seating will be available for those who want to stay masked and not join us for lunch. Our goal is for everyone to feel comfortable and enjoy the talks.

The program is free, with an option to make a donation to support our programming.
