"Heroes of the Holocaust" by Nhi Dao, Caddo Magnet High
(Teacher: Andrew Medlin)

Artist's Statement

My artwork honors the memories of seven notable figures from the Holocaust. I chose these people because they all had played a significant role in the preservation of Holocaust history. Some were protectors who risked their lives to save thousands of Jews, while others shared their experiences of the Holocaust through writings that continue to to be read to this day. It is important to remember the Holocaust through the eyes of these heroes who had demonstrated such bravery and generosity. Overall, I hope my drawing inspires the viewer to learn more about their stories and the importance of their actions.
