Attention: Jeanette Friedman, Editor/Webmanager
Dear Editor,
I am pleased to introduce to you a beautiful and moving Art Book “Images of My Childhood from Sorrows to Joys” by Judith Evan Goldstein.  This book encompasses the full spectrum of art, poetry and lyrics to her original compositions of music. 

       “Judith uses her painting and music as a way to communicate her childhood memories of the past in the Vilna Ghetto and concentration camps.  Her technique, collage/mixed media and painting, invites the viewer into her tormented past, while her more symbolic work speaks to the spirit of the Jews under the most adverse conditions. 

    Judith also raises the question of whether art about the Shoah can be colorful, even beautiful.”

          Dr. Stephen Feinstein, Director – Center for Holocaust         and Genocide Studies, University of Minnesota.


             The “Joys” in her book, is art of shared experiences in the field of music, dance and the beauty of nature.  Her work was on exhibit in eighteen museums throughout the United States and now, some of her paintings are in the permanent collection at the Florida Holocaust MuseumSt. Petersburg, Yad Vashem, Jerusalem and  in private collections.  She was featured in several “One Woman Shows”. 

          Her many paintings can be viewed at the following website, hosted by

University of Minnesota  Judith Goldstein (click on this url).

            Judith is a member of the Child Survivors/Hidden Children of the Holocaust – Palm Beach County, who has brought beauty, culture and a resonant voice of the Holocaust message to many here, in the New York Area, and around the country.


With warm regards,


Zelda Fuksman,

Child Survivors/Hidden Children of the Holocaust Palm Beach County
