Still from Adam Wells's film Shemira

Holocaust
In Focus: Shemira
A desolate moorland, scattered with boulders, under a dark sky. A woman in a blue dress is seated, looking at something she holds in the palm of her hand. A Madonna-like figure with a grey cloak draped around her and covering her head, stands over her, holding a baby in her arms. In the distance there is a small isolated tower, a church or an industrial building.

Artists' responses to the Holocaust
The artworks shown here explore a range of reactions to the Holocaust – from the deeply personal responses of survivors to the more documentary approach of official war artists recording the sights of Bergen-Belsen after its liberation in April 1945.
