Further Information

This set contains fourteen lino cut images created by the artist Aviva Halter-Hurn. Aviva is the daughter of Roman Halter, a survivor of the Holocaust. Roman survived Lodz Ghetto, Auschwitz-Birkenau Killing Centre, and Stutthof Concentration Camp. Aviva started to paint in 1988, wishing to showcase the Holocaust through her artwork, ultimately the process of creating these pieces had a profound effect on her. The images are based on a 1981 book called 'Art of the Holocaust' written by Janet Blatter and Sybil Milton. Aviva did not replicate drawings and works she discovered in the book, but added a layer of interpretation so the art becomes an image of an image. Aviva did not want to presume what a Nazi concentration camp may have looked like, but rather wanted to relate something in a poignant and sensitive manner. To do this she relied on other works and testimony for her research, and highlighted the art as the work and not the content.
