In 2013, 30 youths and teachers in Toronto created an exhibition of paintings in response to the book Night (1960), a record of Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel’s experiences in the Auschwitz and Buchenwald concentration camps. The artworks included triangles painted on book pages in colors and patterns the artists chose to represent their visions of diversity and solidarity with victims of intolerance.
The 25-minute documentary film After Night tells the story of this project from the perspectives of the people involved in it.
