On November 13, Israeli Artist Mira Maylor’s exhibit “Memories of the Holocaust through Art” debuted at the Holocaust Museum of Guatemala, where it will be on display until February 28, 2017. Maylor’s take on memory is creatively manifested, which is displayed in a series of 18 pieces. Five photographs from Guatemalan photographers who have participated in Yahad’s research on the field are also on display in the exhibit. Israeli Ambassador to Guatemala Moshe Bachar spoke at the exhibit’s inauguration, highlighting the important of cross-cultural and historical projects like the exhibit in order to provide Guatemalans with new sources of information and education through art. We are very grateful to the Israeli Embassy in Guatemala for their support in this exhibition.
