schema:description""Because there were only a few authentic instances of visual documentation of events until the war's later stages, artists both used traditional imagery and invented new kinds of imagery to record their responses to the catastrophe taking place. Unfortunately, New York City's Jewish intelligentsia seemed to offer little support, and art critics such as Clement Greenberg largely avoided the issue. Jewish artists were left to cope with the events of the war in isolation, without a collective visual memory to deal with the traumas presented by news reporters." "Artists featured include Marc Chagall, Jacques Lipchitz, Barnett Newman, Abraham Rattner, Mark Rothko, and Max Weber."--BOOK JACKET."@en
