Additionally, all Museum visitors on Yom HaShoah will receive a special daffodil sticker, designed by Izabela Gabrielson.

The shape and color of the daffodils represent the Yellow stars that Jews were forced to wear during the Holocaust. Yellow is the color of remembrance. Daffodils represent our poignant hope for the future. They are resilient and return with a burst of color each Spring, signifying hope, renewal and beauty. The daffodils also honor those who survived the Holocaust and went on to build new lives after this dark and difficult period. 

Izabela Gabrielson is a Seattle based artist and illustrator. She received her art and art history education in Poland and New York City and holds both MA and PhD degrees. She specializes in watercolor and her work has been exhibited in many individual and group shows. She has taught illustration and art history as well as watercolor workshops. She has a line of greeting cards printed from her original watercolor paintings. For more information, please visit her website at
