US279 – Those who bled are remembered. – Holocaust Tile by Ava Bruzzio


This artwork by Ava Bruzzio is inspired by “Night” by Elie Wiesel and the Tile Wall at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. The pupil of the eye in this artwork is the Star of David to symbolize the Jewish faith, and the blood running from the eye signifies the pain the Jewish people endured. The number 11,000,000 is included because that is how many people perished in the Holocaust. The memory of these victims is symbolized by the lit candle.
