Art and the Holocaust: Reflections for the Common Future @ Jews in Latvia Museum, Riga
Jul 2 – Jul 3 all-day
Riga Jewish Community, Museum “Jews in Latvia” and Museum of Romans Suta and Aleksandra Belcova (Riga, Latvia), in collaboration with the International Center of Litvak Photography (Kaunas, Lithuania) and Jewish Historical Institute (Warsaw, Poland) are sponsoring the International Conference “Art and the Holocaust: Reflections for the Common Future”. 
 
The aim of the conference is to present new researches about the relationships between the Holocaust and art (drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, contemporary art, the art of commemoration), as well as the ways that individuals reacted towards atrocities, how they tried to preserve their human dignity, and how the traumatic experience of the Holocaust has influenced European society.
