Join The Florida Holocaust Museum for a special, virtual program to highlight the opening of the new exhibition, Justice, Justice, You Shall Pursue: the Art and Propaganda of Arthur Szyk. Szyk scholar, Irvin Ungar, will speak during the exclusive, free event on Thursday, Jan. 14 at 6:30 p.m. streaming on our Facebook Live. 

Irvin Ungar is the foremost scholar on the work and legacy of Arthur Szyk. Ungar has curated and consulted for numerous Szyk exhibitions. He is the author of Arthur Szyk, Soldier in Art and publisher of the limited edition of The Szyk Haggadah.

Be among the first to see the new exhibit in person when you visit The FHM in January. We’ll be open to the public on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the exception of New Year’s Day (closed). Advanced timed tickets are required to help with social distancing. Reserve yours here: https://thefhm.org/visit/hours

The Florida Holocaust Museum newest exhibition features Szyk’s illustrations, illuminated books, and other works. The exhibition focuses on his early artwork, created before World War II including his famous Hagaddah, and illustrations and propaganda drawn and painted during World War II that ridiculed the Nazis. The exhibition also features works that speak out for social justice and tolerance in the United States as well as works praising American ideals of liberty and justice.

Thank you to Dr. Herbert and Jane Wollowick for generously sharing their collection.

This exhibition is sponsored by The Jewish Federation of Florida’s Gulf Coast, the Gemunder Family Foundation, and an Anonymous donor. This project is also sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture and the National Endowment for the Arts (Section 286.25, Florida Statutes).
