Perpetrators: Lithographs by Sid Chafetz
January 24, 2015 - May 24, 2015
Artist and master printmaker Sid Chafetz dedicated his career to creating art of profound social significance. In Perpetrators, he created a series of portraits of the “ordinary people” who executed Hitler’s ghoulish plans. Perpetrators depicts the complicity of industrialists, businessmen, soldiers, churchmen, physicians, lawyers and bureaucrats who implemented and executed the Nazis’ diabolical schemes.
The message is clear: The Holocaust happened and these are the kinds of people who did it. Implicit is a warning: It could happen again. Be vigilant and know that we can be manipulated by our political leaders.
Perpetrators is a traveling exhibition of The Florida Holocaust Museum.
