“Drawing Against Oblivion” | National Center for Jewish Film’s Annual Festival

May 19, 2016 Boston $12.00 - $14.00 0

NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE. Austrian artist Manfred Bockelmann was born in 1943, the son of privileged parents who joined the Nazi party. Deeply troubled by this history, Bockelmann set out to revive the memory of Jewish children who perished in the Shoah. Turning away from the colorful graphic landscapes for which he was well known, Bockelmann began producing powerful, monumental charcoal drawings born from small photo portraits of the victims. “What happened to the children who lay in the wrong cradle?” Bockelmann asks, “I want to get these children back out of the darkness.”
