A Timeless Warning Against Indifference

In 1980, LAMOTH honored Irwin S. Field, who gave an acceptance speech that is as relevant today as it was 37 years ago. He said, "As Elie Wiesel pointed out in his comments at the inauguration of the President's Holocaust Commission, 'We have learned not to be neutral in time of crisis, for neutrality helps the aggressor, never the victim. We have learned that silence is never the answer. We have learned that the opposite of love is not hatred, but indifference; indifference is the thing we must guard against!'... An attack on one group is going to be an attack on each group and every group in its turn, and if we let it happen, it is going to happen to all of us. I believe the big tool in our arsenal is education. It is not easy to fight the big lie. But, we can do it if we have the courage and conviction to wage that battle."

The Pankowsky Collection: Paintings by Sofia Guttentag-Davidson

Sofia Guttentag-Davidson was born in Lodz, Poland in 1893. She studied art in Munich and then escaped to the Soviet Union when war broke out. After the war, she emigrated to Mexico and turned to art as a means of dealing with her difficult past. Guttentag-Davidson’s work brings her family’s history to life. Her artwork is a powerful representation of Jewish life before the war, the persecution of European Jewry, and her life and memories in Mexico.
