Sabotage, Survival and Sculpture: Naomi Blake’s story

Hosted By: London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS)

Naomi Blake, née Zissi Dum, born in 1924 in Mukacevo, Czechoslovakia, was deported to Auschwitz in April 1944, where many of her family were murdered, and she later sabotaged bombs while working in a munitions factory and escaped Nazi death marches. After resettling in London post-war, her career as a sculptor thrived, with her works promoting interfaith understanding found in synagogues, churches, cathedrals, and hospitals, including at LSJS. Her daughter, Anita Peleg, will recount Naomi’s story using audio testimony, historical photos, and images of her sculptures, highlighting the human spirit’s capacity to overcome adversity and leave a positive legacy; in conjunction with Yom HaShoah, in-person attendees at LSJS can view a newly renovated sculpture by Naomi.
