The exhibition – arranged chronologically in seven sections –focuses on the artist and witness Yehuda Bacon, who survived the liberation of the concentration camp at the age of 15.
At the exhibition MOCAK will present works from its Collection – prints by Jonasz Stern and a photograph of the sculpture Island of Shoes by the Israeli artist Sigalit Landau.
The exhibition is part of the programme The Holocaust and the United Nations, which commemorates the pogrom against Jews in Nazi Germany launched by the state authorities on the night of 9/10 November 1938.
