Silent Voices Speak: Remembering the Holocaust
Exhibition TypeTravelling exhibition
Event DateOctober 16, 2003–December 12, 2003
VenueVancouver Holocaust Education Centre
DescriptionIn Silent Voices Speak, artist and child survivor Barbara Shilo depicts significant moments during the Holocaust through a series of mixed media paintings. Based on black and white documentary photographs, the paintings manipulate the original images for dramatic effect through the use of colour, proportion, repetition and depth. Some rely heavily on the documentary images, while others take more artistic license to connect viewers emotionally with the images portrayed, which reflect the themes of children in the Holocaust, the Warsaw ghetto uprising, deportation, death camps, death marches and liberation.
