At the art gallery of the Gathering hundreds viewed the legacy of those artists who survived who dedicated themselves to documenting what they had witnessed. In paint and clay they memorialized the Jewish people as they were packed into the cattle cars, the yellow Star of David badge, the wide gray and white stripes of the concentration camp uniforms, their sunken and bewildered, hopeless eyes. The artists whose works were exhibited were David Friedman, Luba Gurdus, Ida Piller-Greenspan, Ari Adler. Israel Bernbaum, Ann Celnik, Alfred Tibor, Izabella Tekulsky and Helen Convensky.
