Commemorating the 85th anniversary of Kristallnacht, this HKHTC-HKU Art in the Holocaust exhibition, in collaboration with Yad Vashem, provided a glimpse into art created during the Holocaust in ghettos, camps, forests and while in hiding.

The artworks reflect the tension between the artists’ need to document the terrible events they endured and their desire to break free through art, and escape into the realms of beauty, imagination and faith. These artworks, from Yad Vashem’s Art Collection, stand as testimony to the strength of the human spirit that refuses to surrender.

This exhibition took place during November and December 2023 at the HKU Centennial Campus.

This special project was organized along with the University of Hong Kong and in cooperation with Yad Vashem.
