The artwork consists of a white plaster face with bloody tears and hollow eyes, as a symbol of the extreme suffering of the people sent to death in the extermination camps. The Star of David on the forehead is the symbol of the Jewish community and a black swastika is painted on the lips (as they could not speak) as a sign of Nazi persecution. The white face is placed behind barbed wire, a symbol of the extermination camps.
