Ohio Wesleyan University today announced that Marty Kalb, Frank L. and Eva L. Packard Professor of Fine Arts, will present a lecture titled “Understanding the Holocaust Through Art: Reflections on a Career in Art and World Engagement” at 7:30 p.m. April 11 in Hamilton-Williams Campus Center, 40 Rowland Ave. The event is free and open to the public.

As part of his presentation, Kalb will present a series of artwork titled “Holocaust Portraits: Victims, Perpetrators, Witnesses” — consisting of paintings, drawings, and digitally altered documentary photographs relating to the Holocaust era. The images depict atypical Nazi officials, ordinary citizens, and Jewish and non-Jewish victims from 1938 to 1946.
