By facing reality via the visual arts, the Holocaust no longer can be defined as indescribable; it constitutes a reaffirmation of the human experience by the mostly Jewish victims.

With this in mind, EHRI partner Yad Vashem organized an international EHRI workshop on Holocaust Art which took place in Jerusalem, on 9-11 February, 2015.
