Zila Friedman is one of the leading Shoah (Holocaust) artists, who live and act with us nowadays in Israel as well as in Europe. As a warrior she overcame, has overcome and is still overcoming the everyday difficulties of non ending struggle with her parent’s memories, her grandfather’s and of hers. As a second generation survivor, she continues fighting and succeeds and makes it possible in an incredible brave non compromising art.
“In spite of all we still survive” is the the internal voice calling not only from Zila’s profound vision, but from the entire generation whose voice is their voice to a certain extend. She is the voice of a generation, of which still silence and a powerful calling, sometimes even screaming voice are mixed.
All that are symbiotically converge in Zila’s unique and outstanding art. Let us try to go throughout some of the leading masterpieces.
