Reflections on Man’s Fate: The Art of Judith Weinshall Liberman
On view Sept. 8, 2012 – Jan. 20, 2013

Drawn from the Florida Holocaust Museum ’s permanent collection, this exhibition is made up of paintings and textile work by award-winning artist Judith Weinshall Liberman.

The collection includes wall hangings and works on canvas from her Holocaust Paintings, Holocaust Wall Hangings, Skulls Series and Genocide Series. Her work focuses on the present state of mankind as well as the relentlessness and enormity of history’s darkest period.

Born in Israel , Liberman received four American university degrees including a J.D. degree from the University of Chicago Law School and an LL.M. degree from the University of Michigan Law School. She redirected her interest in law to her passion for art. Liberman is the award-winning author-illustrator of The Bird’s Last Song. Her work has been exhibited in one-person and group shows throughout the United States and abroad, and in public and private collections.

Letters to Sala: A Young Woman’s Life in Nazi Labor Camps
On view Sept. 15 – Dec. 31, 2012

The power of the written word to sustain life is a theme of Letters to Sala: A Young Woman's Life in Nazi Labor Camps. Sala Garncarz saved the items including handwritten postcards, photographs and official documents from the time she entered a labor camp in 1940 until her liberation in 1945.

Also on view:

Humanity Beyond Barbed Wire: Hitler’s Soldiers in the Sunshine States
On view through Oct. 27, 2012

This Florida Holocaust Museum created exhibition is based on a book by Robert Billinger, Hitler’s Soldiers in the Sunshine State. It illustrates the principles of a democratic nation and the humane treatment of enemy combatants during WWII.

A history of hate caused millions of deaths during the Holocaust. However, the treatment of German POWs in the United States during World War II created an obvious contrast as many former German POWs looked back on their experiences as positive ones.
