Marija Claire Hertz was born in Kolbuszowa, Poland on September 13, 1929. Her Parents were very religious Jews who owned a business in the industry of wholesale textiles. She lived in a large home with her family consisting of several aunts and uncles, her grandmother, and older brother Fredrick, as well as her younger sister Ana. She was a good student and was very interested in art. She often painted images of flowers, which were her favorite. She spent most of her time with her neighbor Jade who was nearly a year older than she. When the Nazis obtained power in April of 1941 she was only about 12 years old. German forces fought Polish troops in a battle right in Kaluszyn. After bombs destroyed half of the town, they moved in with their cousin in another city in Poland. Shortly after they were deported to a large ghetto. The ghetto was full of children, elderly, sick, and people desperate for food. They struggled to survive but the worst had yet to come. Jade’s father snuck out to get food from the nearby village and was caught, beat, and shot down in the middle of the square. Marija Claire and her family were transferred to a smaller ghetto where they contained the stronger people. The previous ghetto was cleared out and nearly everybody was killed.

that period. It is easy to assume that once the Holocaust was over, and survivors began rebuilding
their lives, their pain would disappear. However, as echoed in the interviews here, Holocaust
survivors had – and still experience difficulties on a day to day basis. The complexity of the
survivors lives should not and can never be understated. In the…
How Could the Holocaust Happen?
When learning about the holocaust you learn about the horror the Jews faced, the atrocities that occurred, and who committed the atrocities. But one aspect of the holocaust is not often explained, not for a lack of care, but because it is a question that cannot be easily answered or summed up. That question is "How could this happen?". We often portray the Nazis as typical movie villains, not just doing evil things for their own profit, but doing evil things for…
Galerie Fons Welters is proud to present a new solo show by British artist Claire Harvey (1976).

Adolf Hitler was the cause of WWII and the Holocaust because of his anger and personal…

English it translates to pumpkin, I was his little pumpkin and still am. Till this day I am so grateful that he choose to be the father figure in my life.

Six million Jews were persecuted during the Holocaust. This is a number one cannot vision with the naked eye. Families, homes and hopes were destroyed. Not only were the lives of these people taken but so were their souls. Elie weisel remains a very relevant author, especially since Jewish history seems necessary in preventing genocide from happening again. In Night, Elie Wiesel keeps the Holocaust “alive”: as he narrates his experiences of family lost, death of his childhood and questioning of…
