A survivor of the Vilnius Ghetto, Samuel Bak is a painter who for many years has resided in the US. When the artist donated a number of his most notable works, spanning his career from 1945 until 2012, a home was created for them in a purpose gallery that is located in the heart of Vilnius. This is where art lovers and those with an interest in the country’s troubled history can see them today. This museum is not only a testament to his remarkable art, but also to his experience. The works themselves are accompanied by audio testimony from the artists that covers their creation, as well as his life and thoughts. Of particular interest is the book, on permanent display, which Bak drew when he was forced into the Vilna Ghetto at the tender age of nine.
