Once In A Lifetime


My artwork, Once In A Lifetime, shows that six million Jewish people did not get a chance for freedom. It also shows that the people that survived get a chance to tell their story and make people believe how horrible the propaganda was. This art shows how some people had to leave their family to be safe. It also shows how the people had to learn a new language, adapt to new surroundings and go to new schools or find a new job.
