Join the Emil A. & Jenny Fish Center for Holocaust & Genocide Studies at Yeshiva University as they hear from one of the greatest Jewish artists of the era, Samuel Bak, on surviving the Holocaust, Jewish identity, and his hometown of Vilnius.

Woven with Mr. Bak’s singular visual language, world-renown painter Samuel Bak’s arresting catalog attests to his survival as a child in the Vilna Ghetto. A prolific creative, Mr. Bak continues to paint, showing in exhibitions worldwide and opening the Samuel Bak Museum in Vilnius’ Tolerance Center in 2017. In conversation with Vesta Svendsen, Mr. Bak will explore the throughline of the Holocaust and Jewish identity in his work, along with his relationship to Vilnius, past and present.
