International celebrity sculptor Frances Segelman FRSA MRSS created live a sculpture of Mala Tribich MBE.
Mala was liberated by the British Army from Bergen Belsen in April 1945. Today, Mala is an inspirational educator, teaching audiences of all ages about the dangers of unchecked antisemitism, race hatred, and dehumanisation.
Mala feels that it is her duty to speak for all those who cannot speak for themselves, telling all who will listen, about what happened during those dark days in Europe, between 1941 and 1945.
Rosie Whitehouse, led the streamed live event. Rosie is a historical researcher, Journalist, and the author of The People on the Beach: Journeys to Freedom After the Holocaust, who has extensively documented the experience of Holocaust survivors in Europe in the aftermath of the Second World War.
With a long history of sculpting Holocaust survivors, Frances is performing an important work fo capturing the stories of brave survivors, etching their faces in history.
Frances Segelman said: “My sculpture series of Holocaust survivors is some of my most important work, and I am so grateful that I have had the opportunity to sculpt the amazing Mala Tribich. Yad Vashem introduced me initially to Holocaust survivor Sir Ben Helfgott, Mala’s brother, but upon hearing how these remarkable siblings survived the Holocaust, I just knew I had to sculpt them both. The stories of the Holocaust survivors are an integral part of Jewish history, and the terrible experiences these people endured must be remembered and learnt from”.
