Painting the Holocaust

In December 1941, Alfred Kantor arrived at the Terezín ghetto as an 18-year-old artist from Prague who began drawing scenes around him. “My commitment to drawing came out of a deep instinct of self-preservation,” he later wrote, “and undoubtedly helped me to deny the unimaginable horrors of that time.” The hundreds of sketches and watercolors he produced between 1941 and 1947—in Terezín, Auschwitz, and elsewhere—constitute one of the most prolific artistic records of the Holocaust. Join the Museum of Jewish Heritage for a celebration of Kantor’s remarkable life and legacy, featuring his daughter, Monica Churchill; his friend and colleague, Zuzana Justman; and Holocaust art historian Dr. Ori Z. Soltes.
