Sculpting after the Holocaust
This year on Yom HaShoah we remember the Holocaust through the experience and sculpture of Naomi Blake. We will hear Naomi’s story and get an insight into her work through the eyes of Naomi’s daughter Anita (Nin) Peleg, and we will also be introduced - through a recently produced film - to the powerful sculpture of Maurice Blik, who came to England after being liberated from Bergen Belsen. Naomi and Maurice exhibited in a joint sculpture exhibition at Sculpt Gallery in 2015, where Naomi’s protective, nurturing and hopeful style, together with Maurice’s strong, defiant, outward-reaching forms, presented contrasting but equally positive expressions of their experiences as survivors of the Holocaust.

Operating under the auspices of The Board of Deputies of British Jews Charity No. 1058107
