Homage to Dvora Birnberg

acrylic on paper

In homage to Dvora Birnberg, who was deported to Auschwitz and killed. She was only 10 years old. Dvora was born in 1934 in Bistritz, Romania. She was the daughter of Yaakov and Sarah Birnberg. In 1944, the Jewish family was deported to Auschwitz, where they were murdered upon arrival.

Given the conflicts of today, it appears that humanity has dementia. It seems that we choose to forget the atrocities we have committed in the past. We readily excuse acts of violence and terror committed against people we believe to be on the wrong side of the fence. Ultimately, the goal is always to maintain or increase one's power over others. The perpetrators consistently assert the righteousness of their cause. Why do we back these opportunists for power? When will we stop to forget? When will the banality of evil cease to corrupt us? Remembering Dvora Birnberg entails remembering all of the "Dvoras" of today who run the risk of experiencing her destiny once more.
