Alice Lok Cahana
Alice Lok Cahana (February 7, 1929 – November 28, 2017) was a Hungarian Holocaust survivor. Lok Cahana was a youth inmate in the Auschwitz-Birkenau, Guben and Bergen-Belsen camps: her most well-known works are her writings and abstract paintings just about the Holocaust.
Her play a part celebrates Judaism and those murdered in the Holocaust by transforming the horror of their deaths into a testament to their lives. As she told Barbara Rose in the "From Ashes to the Rainbow" catalog interview, "I started to paint only roughly the Holocaust as a great compliment and memorial to those who did not return, and I am nevertheless not finished."
