Judy Glickman Lauder is internationally known as a photographer, philanthropist, collector, and humanitarian. Inspired by her father, Irving Bennett Ellis, a California pictorialist photographer of the 1930s and 1940s, Glickman lauder has been photographing and exhibiting extensively since the late 1970s. Her work has been exhibited in over 300 public and private collections, including the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the United States Holocaust Museum.

Much of Glickman Lauder’s work deals with the subject of the Holocaust. In 1992, Glickman Lauder traveled to Denmark to photograph and document the heroic efforts by the Danish people to rescue the 7,000 Danish Jews in the country during Nazi occupation. Her photography exhibition, “Resistance and Rescue: Denmark’s Response to the Holocaust,” included photographs the living rescuers, survivors and the actual sites of resistance in the country during Nazi occupation. The exhibition was sponsored by Humanity in Action and showed in over 90 locations. The photographs were later included in her 2018 book “Beyond the Shadows: The Holocaust and the Danish Exception,” published on the 75th anniversary of the rescue of Danish Jews.
