holocaust remembrance day

never again


 
Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, a day to honor the six million Jews, men women and children murdered by the Nazis. My ink drawing from today is of the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin which we visited in 2007, as we remember and say, “Never Again.”

Yom HaShoah

 
The Eternal Flame in the Hall of Remembrance at Yad Vashem, Jerusalem, which I drew on July 11th 1967, for this Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, 2019.

“The Eternal Flame, burning from a base fashioned like a broken bronze goblet, continuously illuminates the Hall, its smoke exiting the building through an opening at the highest point of the ceiling. Before it stands a stone crypt containing the ashes of Holocaust victims, brought to Israel from the extermination camps.”
