Summary"The Yad Vashem art collection expresses the voices of survivors in a powerful language of signs and symbols, direct statements produced out of the necessity of those who seek to remember, to delve into the depths of memory. It is not recreated reality, but it is reality itself colored by personal experience. The exhibition is arranged in thematic or visual categories and augmented by recorded testimonies by the artist survivors. The virtues of memory take shape, face and voice, in a multi-layered visual weave producing a powerful ensemble." —Publisher
ContentsForeword / Avner Shalev
Virtues of Memory / Yehudit Shendar
  1. "All is imprisoned within the cell of memory": The borderline between Holocaust and post-Holocaust Art
  2. "A short bridge of life to traverse hastily—toward a death prolonged": The impetus to document
  3. "I remember just one thing: The clatter of the wheels": The Holocaust—forging a visual
  4. "Gaunt of bone, with glassy gaze": Granting the body an image
  5. "No, no: they were certainly human beings: uniforms, boots": The perpetrator—one whose mere words settle fates
  6. "The dew of vengeance—the last testaments of my sainted martyrs!": The Jewish warrior, weapon begrasped
  7. "What hope for the shaded sprig in the downfall of the forest all about?": The Jewish family torn asunder
  8. "And I cry out the 'Crying of Shma' like a clawing of the heart": Faith and art—visual midrashim
  9. "My people—gone, my people is no more": A world departed—collective and personal bereavement
  10. "For I still live, still exist, but my repose—is with the slaughtered": Yizkor and an eternal flame—monuments to the murdered
  11. "Silence permeated life, and life entered silence": The artist's choice of the abstract
