Gallery Talk with Guest Curator Joan Kraisky on Michael Knigin: The Holocaust and Anne Frank

158 Main Street
East Hampton, New York 11937

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2016 | 2pm

In 1974 the Israel Museum and the Jerusalem Foundation invited noted artist Michel Knigin to Israel. His charge was to establish the first professional lithographic and silk screen atelier in Israel. Knigin began meeting survivors of the holocaust and interpreting their suffering through sketches that became montages. In recognition of his work, the Israel Museum granted Knigin full and unrestricted access to its Holocaust archives including pictures of the victims in the camps, of revolts, deportation, ghettos, liberation, and of course, Anne Frank. This exhibition is both a chronology of the terrors into which Anne Frank was born and a record of her response to them. Museum Hours: Mon, Fri & Sat 11am-5pm; Sun noon-5pm.
