South-Florida-logo

The Florida Holocaust Museum, located at 55 Fifth Street South, St Petersburg, is proud to present the following new exhibits:

Reflections on Man’s Fate: The Art of Judith Weinshall Liberman, on view September 8, 2012 through January 20, 2013. The exhibit, drawn from the Florida Holocaust Museum’s permanent collection, is made up of paintings and textile work by award-winning artist Judith Weinshall Liberman.

The collection includes wall hangings and works on canvas from her Holocaust paintings, Holocaust wall hangings, skulls series and genocide series. Her work focuses on the present state of mankind as well as the relentlessness and enormity of history’s darkest period.

Liberman was born in Israel. She received four American university degrees including a J.D. degree from the University of Chicago Law School and LL.M degree from the University of Michigan Law School.

Liberman redirected her interest in law to her passion for art. She is the award-winning author-illustrator of “The Bird’s Last Song.” Her work has been exhibited in shows throughout the United States and abroad.

Letters to Sala: A Young Woman’s Life in Nazi Labor Camps, on view September 15 through December 31, 2012. The opening reception for the exhibit will be held on Thursday, September 20 at 7 p.m.

The power of the written word to sustain life is a theme of “Letters to Sala: A Young Woman’s Life in Nazi Labor Camps.” Sala Garncarz saved items including handwritten postcards, photographs and official documents from the time she entered the labor camp in 1940 until her liberation in 1945.

Ann Kirscher, daughter of the author, will attend the event as a special guest. The reception will be free to museum members and $16 per person for guests. RSVP at (727) 820-0100 ext 236.
