Art reviewer Dr. Dalia Hakker-Orion wrote about Dick Ben Dor’s work:
Dick Ben Dor is an artist born in Holland whose early years were spent on a Dutch farm hiding from the Nazis. His works do not carry even the slightest trace of this traumatic past. His uncle, the artist Niko Broekman, has been a cardinal influence on his joyous colors and bubbling humour. There have been two other major influences on his artistic development, Mmoti Mizrachi and Professor John Byle. the forms remind one of cave paintings and ancient drawings on walls, or sometimes the work of primitive tribal artists. Dick Ben Dor is a founder member of “The Israel Miniature Art Society” and is one of their principal activists, as well an active member of the Painter’s & Sculptors Association of Israel.

Dr. Stephen Feinstein sent me a link to Fritz Hirschberger’s (b. 1912 in Dresden) stunning painting titled THE CONCORDAT  (the name of the 1933 agreement signed between the Vatican and Hitler) on the web site of The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies.
The painting shows a Nazi soldier standing with a faceless Catholic priest on a Jew with a Yellow Badge

John Byle, Professor of art, wrote about Dick Ben Dor’s work:
Dick Ben Dor creates a magical enchanted world which charms and captivates our senses. His work is open, frank and innocent, artless in a positive sense.
