The Florida Holocaust Museum is pleased to present the exhibition The Holocaust and the Book of Fire by Murray Zimiles. The exhibition opening reception will take place on Saturday, September 9th at 5:30 p.m. and in conjunction with Keep St Pete Lit and the Second Saturday ArtWalk, nine writers will perform their short stories, poems, and imaginings inspired by this exhibition.

The paintings, drawings, prints, and artist's books by Murray Zimiles are graphic statements meant to engage and propel the viewer into a whirlwind of fire and devastation. In these powerful works, Zimiles deals with the perceived absence of God and the absence of civilization during the Holocaust. 

The exhibition opening reception and performance is free and open to the public. Complimentary beer, wine, and snacks will be served. To reserve your seat, please call 727.820.0100, extension 301.
