US284 – Hope and Remembrance – Holocaust Tile by Dana Treier


This artwork by Dana Treier is inspired by “Night” by Elie Wiesel and the Tile Wall at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. It depicts Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, when Jewish businesses were targeted and deliberately vandalized. The tile includes a barbed wire fence to symbolize isolation and antisemitism as well as sunflowers and a butterfly to signify hope and remembrance.
