2010 BAIPA Award Winner: Best Art Book. Realm of Silence approaches the most devastating event in modern history with tenderness and beauty. In her pairing of nine oil paintings and nine poems, Elvire Coriat de BaŽre has created a series of reflections with which the eye and mind may engage gently, reflections that honor life and condemn barbarity in the most human ways. In her work, we find a recognition of the darkest realities of the Second World War, yet simultaneously an affirmation of spirit and compassion, artistry dedicated to the redemption of human grace and dignity. Ms. de BaŽre has combined exquisite paintings with poignant verse, bringing new expression to the heretofore silent and unheard, and illuminating the emotional depths of the tortured souls of six million dead.

Review:

Realm of Silence pairs painting and poetry to create a haunting, yet beautifully rendered narrative. We begin to go beyond seeing the photographs and knowing the facts to understanding some of what the Holocaust was about. --Erin M. Blankenship, Curator of Exhibitions and Collections, Florida Holocaust Museum

The paintings are a study in subtlety: they're stark without being simplistic, evocative without being maudlin. And they portray the unimaginable horror and death of the Holocaust without actually displaying any of it. --Joe Eskenazi, staff writer J. the Jewish News Weekly of Northern California

Through only nine paintings and the accompanying poems, Elvire Coriat de Baëre skillfully portrays the horrors of the Holocaust from its inception to its closing stage. --Isaac Jack Lévy, author, And the World Stood Silent: Sephardic Poetry of the Holocaust
