The Florida Holocaust Museum is pleased to present a talk with Murray Zimiles, the artist behind the exhibition The Holocaust and the Book of Fire.

The paintings, drawings, prints, and artist's books by Zimiles are graphic statements meant to engage and propel the viewer into a whirlwind of fire and devastation. In these powerful works, Zimiles deals with the perceived absence of God and the absence of civilization during the Holocaust.

Zimiles is the stepson of a Holocaust Survivor and felt compelled as an artist to deal with the subject. His work has been exhibited internationally and is included in many private and public collections such as the Brooklyn Museum; the Jewish Museum, NY; the Museum of Modern Art, NY; the 9/11 Memorial Museum; and the National Collection, Washington DC.

Free for Members of The FHM. $9 General Admission. Wine and light refreshments will be served. To reserve your seat, please call 727.820.0100, extension 301.
