Holocaust Art Paintings Burning Of The Warsaw Ghetto – this painting is shown here in detail and depicts the burning of the Warsaw Ghetto.

Artist’s Statement: I began this series ten years ago, basing many of the paintings on her story. Therefore, many are historical, limited to the Warsaw ghetto and Birkenaw. The rest of the paintings are in honor of her children, and all of the children lost or who bear the scars of having the live through that time. The paintings reflect my emotional reaction to the helplessness and fear that they must have felt. The historical paintings were also important because I wanted them to be accurate, creative and powerful. They had to show one artist’s vision and style. I believe that I have achieved a melding of historical facts with powerful paintings that evoke emotion and thought. – Judith Dazzio

The addition of charcoal ehanced tthe painting. The symbolism of the birds andteh closth about to envelop the child was very miving. The use of simple strong lighting is also a plus.”
