Stephen Smith to moderate panel on art and the Holocaust at Comic-Con

Thursday, July 18, 2019 - 1:30pm


Stephen D. Smith, USC Shoah Foundation’s Finci-Viterbi Executive Director, will moderate a discussion on art and propaganda during the Holocaust and WWII. 

 

“Nazi and Allied propaganda art was used in many ways with devastating results,” says a page on Comic-Con’s website about the panel. “Holocaust victims drew what they saw, and this was the universal language that told the stories of the Holocaust as it happened."
