The Yad Vashem art collection expresses the voices of survivors in a powerful language of signs and symbols, direct statements produced out of the necessity of those who seek to remember, to delve into the depths of memory. It is not recreated reality, but it is reality itself colored by personal experience. The exhibition is arranged in thematic or visual categories and augmented by recorded testimonies by the artist survivors. The virtues of memory take shape, face and voice, in a multi-layered visual weave producing a powerful ensemble.
