This year's calendar offers a selection of portraits from the Yad Vashem Art Collection. Some portraits were painted prior to the Holocaust, while others were created in the midst of the cataclysmic events of the Shoah. By portraying their brethren, the Jewish artists sought to leave a trace of their presence and identity for posterity, thus fighting the Nazis plan to annihilate the Jewish nation. The result is a rare and fascinating human mosaic of individuals from different origins and backgrounds who shared the Jewish people's common fate during the darkest era in its history. As part of Yad Vashem's ongoing efforts to document the lives and identities of Jewish victims, whenever possible the name of the person portrayed and some informative are given.
Yad Vashem's Art Collection is comprised of more than 10,000 works of art, most of which were created during the Holocaust. These provide a unique perspective of the Shoah – that of the individual’s experience. Each of these works is, in essence, an irreplaceable personal testimony of life during the Holocaust.

Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, was established in 1953. Located on the Mount of Remembrance in Jerusalem, Yad Vashem is dedicated to Holocaust remembrance, education, documentation and research – seeking to meaningfully impart the legacy of the Shoah for generations to come.
