Remembering: The Gifts of Samuel Bak


Remembering: The Gifts of Samuel Bak


Samuel Bak

Remembering: The Gifts of Samuel Bak accompanies the artist's exhibition of 125 paintings in The Samuel Bak Gallery and Learning Center, in Loving Memory of Hope Silber Kaplan at the Holocaust Museum Houston.

The collection spans Samuel Bak's artistic career, from the early paintings he created in the Vilna Ghetto, to his most recent paintings in the past decade. With images including pears, Hebrew letters, boats, and cups, Bak's works are deeply symbolic of the questions one asks whilst grappling with the tragedies of the Holocaust—questions about faith, life, death, and hope. Along with the rich images of his works, the publication includes essays by Holocaust scholar Lawrence L. Langer, and an interview with the artist discussing each work.
