WHITE PLAINS - There's now a powerful, visual tribute to one of the ugliest memories of the 20th century on display in the Hudson Valley.

Ed Lessing, an 82-year old Holocaust survivor, has tapped into his painful past to create a series of paintings he hopes will inspire the next generation to 'never forget.'

The collection of art called 'Stilled Music' is now on display all week at Arts Westchester on Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains. "For Holocaust survivors, the war years are always there, we live with it every day. It's so natural that I would go back into my history of my family and tell some of the things that happened," says Lessing.

The Art Show was sponsored by the Holocaust and Human Rights Education Center.
