The History of the Holocaust

 The art and other literary pieces produced out of the Holocaust are some of the most intensely powerful images ever created.  To be able to fully understand both the art and the artist behind the work it is essential to be familiar with the historical happenings of this period.

Please be advised that if you decide to click on other sections of the website which you have not been instructed to that there is some very offensive, disturbing, and upseting material about the Holocaust.  You are encouraged to browse the sites of The United States Holocaust Memorial Musem but please do so with care.
