Two Regimes Exhibition: Rochester, NY

Two Regimes Exhibition

From September 19 to mid-December, the Irondequoit Public Library will have Two Regimes art on display.

Genocide-related Art

Two Regimes is the life’s work of two Ukrainian women: A Mother (Teodora Verbitskaya), who wrote about her life from 1920 to 1945, and her daughter Nadia Werbitzky, a professionally trained artist who painted from memory. Teodora and Nadia were witnesses to both the Holodomor and the Holocaust in Mariupol, Ukraine.

“Two Regimes” tells a true and powerful story of survival under the two regimes of Stalin and Hitler: before, during and after the Holodomor of 1932-33, the Holocaust of 1933-1945 and WWII. Teodora’s family witnessed first-hand, the atrocities of two brutal dictators during their reigns of terror that starved entire populations and forced 7,500 Jews from Mariupol, Soviet Ukraine, to their murderous deaths at the hands of the Nazis in Soviet Ukraine, in 1941.
