Georgia Gabor: The Handcuffs


My artwork was handcuffs and at the bottom it said, “They were taken.” In the interview Georgia Gabor said that they were taken to labor camps but I thought that shortening it would be more powerful and meaningful. “They were taken” stuck out to me the most. What I drew was handcuffs and a gate in the background, on the handcuffs was the Jewish Star to imply it was the Jews being taken no matter where they lived. Georgia Gabor was only 13 when she saw the Jewish family being taken.
