FROM THE USHMM: A Live Program | The Art of Protest

United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

The Art of Protest: Then and Now
Live Digital Program

Polish-born artist Arthur Szyk was alarmed by the Nazi threat and used his pen and paper to call public attention to the persecution of Europe’s Jews. He depicted Hitler and the Axis powers as global menaces and drew sympathetic and even heroic portrayals of the victims of their brutality.

Request a reminder to join Museum experts for a discussion about the power of art—then and now—to change minds and highlight our shared humanity.

WHEN: Wednesday, July 15, 9:30 a.m. ET
WHERE: United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Facebook page

Dr. Steven Luckert, Senior Program Curator, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Dr. Edna Friedberg, Historian, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Watch live at and join in the conversation.

You do not need a Facebook account to view our program. After the live broadcast, it will be available to watch on demand on the Museum’s Facebook page.
