Jacqueline Kott-Wolle’s Jewish identity was informed by the experiences of her parents and grandparents who arrived in Canada in 1949 after the Holocaust. As a member of the ‘Second Generation’, the artist also reflects on how her forebears faced the enormous task of starting over after surviving one of modern history’s darkest chapters.

Join DOROT for a special artist’s tour of this special Chicago exhibit as they see and learn more about the colorful cast of characters as they rebuild their lives and flourish in North America’s vibrant Jewish communities. Growing Up Jewish – Art & Storytelling speaks to the resilience of newcomers who must navigate a painful past, contend with tradition and summon optimism for the future. Painted in a fresh palette of vibrant color, Growing Up Jewish – Art & Storytelling traces the story of one North American Jewish family through five generations from 1925 to the present.
