"VIOLATED! Women in Holocaust and Genocide"

AFMDA - Join Us and Help Save Lives in Israel

(Apr. 12-May 12) — Join us for the opening of "VIOLATED! Women in Holocaust and Genocide," Remember the Women Institute’s international art exhibition at the Ronald Feldman Gallery, 31 Mercer Street, SoHo, New York City, at 6:00 – 8:00 PM on Thursday evening, April 12, 2018, and running for a month. 

At a time when powerful men’s sexual abuse of women is making daily headlines, this exhibition offers artistic representations of sexual violence with a much greater ratio of power to powerlessness — during the Holocaust and some later genocides. There were no conditions for a #MeToo movement for Holocaust survivors, and despite advances in technology and feminist ideology, this situation has not changed significantly for the victims of later genocides. The women were often murdered, and survivors were frequently silenced by their own unwarranted sense of shame. Those who spoke out were sometimes discouraged.

This trailblazing exhibition includes 47 cutting-edge works addressing sexual violation in a variety of media and styles. Exhibition curator is Dr. Batya Brutin and exhibition coordinator is Dr. Rochelle G. Saidel. The exhibition has an accompanying catalog, concurrent educational events, and a forthcoming on-line version. An April 15 matinee of dramatic readings at the gallery will complement the exhibition. The 30 artists, from Israel, the United States, and other countries, include victims, their close relatives, witnesses, and concerned others.
