ST. PETERSBURG - Perpetrators: Lithographs by Sid Chafetz, an art exhibition, will be presented Jan. 24 through May 24 at the Florida Holocaust Museum, 55 Fifth St. S.

Chafetz, an artist and master printmaker who has dedicated his professional career to creating works of art of profound social significance, will present a series of portraits of what might be called "ordinary people" who executed Hitler's ghoulish plans. Although he often works in woodcuts, for this subject, he chose monotone lithographs as his predominate medium. There is no attempt at artifice; the people and their brief biographies are revealed as documentary facts - an aesthetic decision that commands a heightened sense of reality.
