Holocaust Series, Book Seven


Holocaust Series, Book Seven


'The outer box of this volume has a false bottom and the inside cover contains a tribute to Anne Frank- ' In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good...' Reproduced is a photograph of Anne Frank.
In the upper compartment is housed a book that has quotations from children and other inmates with actual references to the concentration camp and its history. Embossed and de-embossed images are embedded on each page of the book. In the corner of each page is a copper plate with painted or stenciled page numbers.

The art work echoes the drawings of the children. One page has the hand prints of the artist's four year old daughter. On the bottom of some pages are quotations from famous contemporary people - Martin Luther King, etc. Sources are cited for the text.

Acknowledgment is made regarding the hand-cut Hebrew calligraphy on the outer wrapper of the column - 'Know before whom ye stand...' There is a bottom compartment in the case with a pull-out tray - the false floor pays tribute to Anne Frank.

The book inside has a tri-fold cover with three small books inside. The books reproduce three of the most famous collages, originals housed in the Jewish State Museum. Collage 1 refers to the poem ' I never saw another butterfly,' by Eva Stenova; Collage 2 is 'Views of Terezin,' by Hanus Weinberg; Collage 3 pays tribute to aviator-author Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
