This compelling and candid memoir by Mindy Weisel, an internationally acclaimed artist and author and cousin to famed author and Holocaust Survivor Elie Wiesel. Mindy Weisel traces her search for beauty in her life, which began as a child born in the Bergen-Belsen Displaced Person’s Camp to parents who had survived the Auschwitz concentration camp. Hers is a courageous and honest portrait of her struggle to understand the legacy she was born into. Her successful journey in becoming an artist with her own voice, and an unshakable will to live with beauty, is most inspiring. After: The Obligation of Beauty immerses the reader in Mindy’s astonishing body of paintings that explore the subtleties of color as a means in expressing emotion. The process of creating art not only became an antidote to the pain and suffering she witnessed and felt, but it also became an “obligation” for finding joy and love in the face of pain.
