Moreshet’s permanent and rotating displays and exhibits include:
“Dorot: Holocaust Education through Art”
“The Sky Was Empty” – An Exhibition by the Painter Esti Mayer
As a “second generation” Holocaust survivor, Esti Mayer, an Israeli painter living and working in Canada, embarked upon a sensitive and meaningful personal journey to the depths of the traumatic period of the Holocaust. Through a series of paintings, some of which are displayed at Moreshet, she explores her emotions, raises questions and thoughts, and attempts to feel, address, learn, and immortalize memories and writings that enable her to remember and never to forget. The artist dedicated this impressive project to the memory of her grandfather Moritz Mayer, who perished in the Holocaust, and her grandmother Rozalia Winkler-Mayer. Esti, who is the daughter of Yitzhak Mayer, a former Israeli ambassador to Belgium and Switzerland, had the following to say about her work: “The Holocaust Suite is dedicated to the memory of my grandfather Moritz Mayer, who perished in Auschwitz in September 1943, and my heroic grandmother Rozalia Winkler-Mayer, who survived and saved her children, thereby granting life to my children.”
· “Faces of Resistance: Women in the Holocaust,” which tells the stories of a large number of women heroes who fought and resisted during WWII, each in her own way.
· “The Journey to the Yearning of the Soul,” which explores the activities of displaced Jewish Holocaust survivors in the Cyprus detention camps. Among other things, it displays original paintings and drawings by Shraga Weil and Shmuel Katz.
· “Luboml – A Jewish World That Ceased to Exist” is a photo exhibition that explores the pre-Holocaust story of the lively Jewish towns of Eastern Europe known as shtetls.
