The Hope


The drawing is titled “The Hope” in the memory of those people who were waiting to be released from concentration camps. In a gloomy landscape, like the barbed wire walls and fences carefully guarded by soldiers, appears a butterfly, heralding a new season, warmer and more favorable. It stands the continuity of life, beyond the difficult season of suffering, giving people a reason to hope
