HOLOCAUST CAUSATIONS

A selection of my few paintings that attempt to deal with the theme of the Holocaust
and even contemporary anti-Semitism, but within positive context of Divine  Providence



 Abraham's Prophecy

Abraham's Vision

The Patriarch Abraham was ordered to pass
through a set of animal carcasses

(Genesis 15: 7-15) to receive the frightening
prophesy of the Exile, not only to Egypt,
but to all the exiles (including the Holocaust)
that his descendants would suffer.
mixed materials on canvas
40" x 50" (102 x 127 cm)




Meditation on Jewish Stars

Jewish stars in Auswitz

Suggestions of the barbed wire of Aushwitz
being transformed into Jewish stars
and a hope for the future.

   
mixed materials on canvas
24" x 37" (61 x 94 cm)


museum of tolerance

Special exhibition of above paintings on Holocaust Day
at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.
Viewing the works are the artist Dov Lederberg
and Mrs. Liebe Geft, Director of  the Museum.


Terrorist - Surprise!
 
Shaheed

The surprised face of a terrorist
who has just blown himself up (and others as well)
and instead of entering a paradise with 72 virgins
finds himself burning in hell.
 Perhaps my most macabre work
and one of my rare political statements
catalyzed by the impossible & grim state
of affairs in Israel & the world today
and the possibility of a new Holocaust.
