Rabbi Yitzhak Elchanan Gibraltar was born in 1929 in Kovno, Lithuania, into an ultraorthodox Jewish family. When he was 12 years old the Germans conquered Kovno, and along with his parents, three brothers and other family members, he was sent to the ghetto that was set up in the city. As a young boy Rabbi Gibraltar worked as a courier for the labor office of the Judenrat and was a member of the study group, “Tiferet Bachurim”. The family, which was miraculously saved on several occasions from the “aktions” leading to the killings fields, was sent in the summer of 1944 from the Kovno ghetto to the Stutthof concentration camp in Germany where the family’s mother perished. A month later Rabbi Gibraltar was transferred with his father and brothers to the Dachau concentration camp from where they left on a death march until their liberation in May 1945. Rabbi Gibraltar sailed from Italy on an immigrant ship in September 1946. The ship was taken over by the British, and they were sent to Cyprus. Seven months later, in March1947, Rabbi Gibraltar arrived in Israel, and studied for seven years at the Hebron Yeshiva in Jerusalem. Rabbi Gibraltar married Rachel, from the Stern family, and together they raised a virtuous and blessed family.

The movie was produced by the International School for Holocaust Studies of Yad Vashem with the cooperation of The Ministry of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs, and with the generous support of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany and The Adelson Family Foundation.

Yad Vashem Calendar 2021-2022: Art Created by Women during the Holocaust

This year's calendar features artworks created by Jewish women during the Holocaust era, as well as some signifying a final memorial to the endeavors of women artists who were murdered during the Shoah. The calendar offers a glimpse into the treasures of Yad Vashem's Art Collection, while commemorating these artists and their works. The artists belong to different generations, come from various social and cultural backgrounds and have differing artistic training, but they all share a passion for art. The various genres  ̶  portraits, scenic views and still lifes, as well as the numerous styles and techniques   ̶  reflect the cultural richness of female Jewish artists who lived in Europe prior to and during the Holocaust. Some of the paintings and drawings allude to the cruel reality of life in the ghetto; others express the artists' longing to escape into the realm of beauty and aesthetics. The works left behind by the murdered artists, on the whole charming and pleasant, are a moving testimony to the existence and productivity of their creators.

Yad Vashem's Art Collection currently comprises 12,670 works of art, most of which were created during the Holocaust. 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.
