Artwork of the Day: One Spring


by Karl Bodek and Kurt Conrad Low

Usually, I let the work speak for itself but I do want to explain why I picked this picture for today, Yom HaShoah.  This simple drawing was a collaboration between two artists.  In 1941, both Karl Bodek and Kurt Conrad Low were being in the Gurs Internment Camp in Southern France.   This was the view they had: a butterfly sitting on barbed wire with the Spanish mountains in the background.  Kurt Conrad Low managed to escape to Switzerland.  Karl Bodek died at Auschwitz.

Never forget.  Never again.
