In connection with Gil Yefman's art exhibition, Remember the Women Institute presented a special evening program with the artist at the Ronald Feldman Gallery. Gil Yefman is a brilliant young Israeli artist who grapples with sexual violence in the Holocaust. He joined Ronald Feldman, Dr. Sonja M. Hedgepeth, Dr. Rochelle G. Saidel, as well as the audience, for an evening of conversation and other activities. The event included:
• The exhibition, Gil Yefman: "Bay mir bistu sheyn" (To me you are beautiful).
• A glass of wine and a nosh.
• The opportunity to watch and interact with Gil Yefman's performance art about forced prostitution.
• A public conversation with Gil Yefman, along with Sonja Hedgepeth, and Rochelle Saidel, authors of Sexual Violence against Jewish Women during the Holocaust.
