Nicky Imber

Nicky Imber (1920-1996) was an outstanding multi-disciplinary artist whose artworks are displayed all over the world: from northern Israel, through the Vatican and the USA, to the Venezuela Children's Prehistoric Park. After escaping the death camp of Dachau by using his incredible artistic skills in an ingenious fashion, Nicky promised himself to perpetuate the Holocaust's remembrance. This was in order that every generation would remember the cruelty which the Jews had suffered from in exile, until they finally returned to the Holy Land. In 1978, Nicky got the chance to keep his promise by moving to the north of Israel where (in Carmiel) he built the Holocaust Memorial Park entitled "From Holocaust to Resurrection".
