|My work shows the Nazis pinning down the
Jews' freedom and striking at the heart of their beliefs
||The plant pot represents the Nazis, with the
barbed wire growing out symbolising the terror and destruction the growing
Nazi power caused. The barbed wire is piercing the Star of David,
representing the Jews being torn and tortured by the Nazis. The
poppies represent lost dead and remembrance.
||My model represents the Jews being fenced in
by the Nazis. You can see the bright colour of the Star bursting
|The woman on my picture is Jewish and she is
crying tears with the Star of David in. In the background, there are
more Jewish tears. The fire is Nazi fire attacking the Jews, and the
barbed wire is trapping the Jewish woman.
||The pictures painted on the side of the
candle show what was taken away from the Jews. The teddy caught in
the barbed wire shows that lots of children were killed in the
Holocaust. The numbers down the side show how many people died
altogether - 6,000,000.
||I have recreated a 12 year old Jewish girl's
desk. I have written a poem out that a girl wrote when she was
12. Also on the desk are a picture of her brother who died when she
was 5, a candle and a necklace which she would have kept dear to
her. The day Eva Pickova wrote this poem, she died.
