Forced Exit: A Student Art Exhibit

Exhibition TypeIn-house exhibition
VenueVancouver Holocaust Education Centre
DescriptionThis exhibition of artwork by Sentinel Secondary School students was inspired by a collection of deportees’ battered suitcases and organized by art teacher Barb Sunday. Student artist Azadeh Yaraghi explains, “While I was completing my piece, I thought about myself and my family witnessing the bombing of Tehran when I was ten. We, too, packed hurriedly and left with both panic and uncertainty. I left my childhood friends forever. As I worked and thought, I realized that while there are similarities, there are also differences in the outcome of the two events.”
