Never Again, Remembering Jack Lewin

Jun

ack Lewin was forced to live in a Jewish Ghetto. It’s important to remember those who were put through hardship. My artwork does this by depicting a trial in this survivor’s life. His father volunteered for a work camp for his family to receive money. In Lewin’s interview, he says he never saw his father again. This statement struck me so I decided that this is what I wanted to depict. The piece shows young Jack reaching out, calling to his father. You can see a “work needed” flyer in the wind, the very thing that took Jack’s father away.
