Holocaust Series, Book One

Title

Holocaust Series, Book One

Description

An outer case is made of lathe and plaster with a brief statement about the art and camp inside Terezin on the inside cover. The metal book frame is made of soldered metal and wire and the spine has a representation of the Star of David. There are wires which symbolize a prison environment, several nooses, a guard tower, a window in a SS prison wall, and shower heads - symbolizing the Nazi's final solution of the Jewish people.
There is a green inner box that is hand sewn with five little booklets. The booklets have art work and poetry of the children and inmates from the Theresienstadt - one dozen written fragments from survivors and victims of the camps. The artist cites all of his sources on the back of each booklet.
