Exhibit Opening - Recalling a Lost World: David Labkovski Brings the Stories of Sholem Aleichem to Life
Time & Location
About the Event
For artist David Labkovski, reading and illustrating the stories of Yiddish author Sholem Aleichem was a return to his own childhood in Vilna. He illustrated the small, everyday moments of life in the shtetl that Sholem Aleichem captured in his stories. Labkovski wanted to commemorate the Jewish ‘world that was’—not just how the Jewish people died, but how they lived for centuries before the Holocaust.
