    Nowhere To Go - Family Tree, Mixed Media/cut out canvas,79½" x 70",1990

    Yellowed photographs (most probably the last photographs) of my paternal grandparents, both of whom died in the concentration camps, are literally collaged onto a tree. Under their photos are papers that depict their fate, complete with dates and transport notices.Yahrzeit candles mourn for the dead, as well as barely light up the names of the 70 members of my family who perished.
