Internment, Identity, and Resistance: The Art of the Camps during World War II
Join Rabbi Dennis Sasso and his guest Julia Muney Moore for conversation, humor, and spirits at Cocktail Judaism at Congregation Beth-El Zedeck.
The artwork of Jewish prisoners in concentration camps during the Holocaust and of Japanese-American prisoners in internment camps during World War II provide glimpses not only into camp conditions, but also about the internees’ personal stories, ideologies, and hopes. Art is an assertion of identity and a powerful tool for resistance. Our discussion will illuminate how both groups resisted and kept their culture alive through art education, professional-level work, and handcrafts.
Dessert, coffee, tea, and wine compliments of Beth-El Zedeck. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
