Homage to Barett Greenman


59 x 45 cm (h x w)

acrylic on paper

Eva Bremer was born in Rotterdam, on 28 January 1932. She was deported to Auschwitz together with her younger brother Joseph Bremer. They were murdered in a gas chamber with their mother Lena on 5 August 1942. She was only 10 years old.

A Stolpersteine ​​was placed for Eva Bremer at her home address, Pijnackerplein 42 B in Rotterdam. Approx. 18,000 children in the Netherlands were deported and murdered by the Nazis.

This portrait of Eva is part of my series “Resonance - Never Forget”. Her life was taken by Germans adhering to racist Nazi ideology, only because Eva was Jewish.

Each portrait of these children is a contemplation of sorts for me, on their life. While I am sad about her fate and the senselessness of what she had to suffer, I want to celebrate her life and all that potential that is brimming from her smile with this portrait.
