From the Children Holocaust Exhibit

 

The From the Children, About the Children, For the Children: Art and Writing of the Holocaust Exhibit is a collection of children’s artwork, poetry and selections from an underground youth newspaper created during the Holocaust. The exhibit is designed to encourage responses from today’s youth. This powerful and educational Holocaust exhibit speaks to the emotions that young people experienced as they confronted the Holocaust.

Feelings of isolation, fear, hunger, and humiliation are expressed through art and poetry, teaching compassion to today’s youth through the vivid imagery used by these children.

The panels include excerpts from two youth newspapers that were written in the Terezin ghetto in Czechoslovakia.  Boys of ages 12-15 who were living in the required barracks created their own means of expression by editing newspapers. Most of the children involved in writing these newspapers perished in Auschwitz or other extermination camps before the war’s end, but their writings were thankfully preserved and later published.
