As a Jewish girl, Nelly Toll was in secret hiding with her mother during the Second World War in Poland. Her artwork depicts her real and imagined world during the Nazi occupation. She dreamed through her watercolor paintings, which showed her hope and imagination through an unfathomable hardship.
“The historical backdrop of World War II and occupied Poland provides context for Nelly’s personal narrative and illustrations; but this is not an exhibition about the Holocaust,” says Alexandra Nicholis Coon, executive director of the Massillon Museum, the organization traveling the exhibition. “Rather, it is a powerful story of surviving even the darkest of times through imagination, hope, and love.”
Today, Dr. Toll uses her personal experience as a platform to address bullying, emphasizing the importance of exercising compassion for all people. Toll’s most complete collection of original artwork will be on display at the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio from September 15 to December 23, 2018.
