Elsa Pollak (b. 1911, Czechoslovakia) was deported with her entire family in 1944 to the Auschwitz camp. After the Liberation, she went to Wien (Vienna) where she studied art, specializing in ceramics. In 1962 she immigrated to Israel and made her home in Herzliya, where she continues to produce. Her works have been exhibited in Israel and abroad.
The sculptures in this exhibition tell of the artist’s memories, as the tattooed number of an Auschwitz inmate is etched in her soul.
