The 14 Annual Pinkhus & Rhoda Gurevich Yom HaShoah Essay & Art Challenge this year asked its young participants to research the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, a moment of heroic Jewish resistance in the face of total annihilation. The young people wrote essays and poetry and created works of art from paintings and drawings to three-dimensional pieces.
Sponsored by B’nai B’rith Commonwealth Worcester Lodge 600
and organized by Jewish Federation of Central Mass., the finished projects were exhibited at the Worcester Community Yom Hashoah memorial on April 7.
Here are several of this year’s works of art.
