The Gatov Gallery in partnership with Yad VaShem presents Stars Without a Heaven:
Children in the Holocaust
The exhibition is dedicated to the unique stories of children during the Holocaust through the selection of drawings, poems, letters, and toys. Despite their appalling situations and living conditions, children still engaged in imaginative play, sketching, and writing, expressing their hopes, dreams, and fears. This display of optimism, positivity, creativity, and imagination demonstrate the unique capacity of children to hold on to the forces of life despite living in unspeakable circumstances.
