- The Artwork of Nelly Toll

Click to View Pictures from the Show

In WWII Nazi-occupied Poland, a young Jewish girl named Nelly Toll was forced into hiding with her mother. Camped out in the small bedroom of a tiny apartment owned by a Catholic couple, Nelly and her mother did not go outside for 18 months. During this time, Nelly began painting watercolor images of happy children, carefree school days, and more, accompanying these images with handwritten short stories. Her imagined world brought her hope and comfort in the midst of tragedy and became a powerful vehicle for making sense of the history around her.

Imagining a Better World: The Artwork of Nelly Toll is organized by the Massillon Museum, Massillon, Ohio, with support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
