Childhood By Judy Racz

ART, Yellow Badge, This small photo in low resolution is courtesy of Judy Racz who wrote to me:

If you zoom in, you might be able to see more in it. The painting is

"veiled", indicating that it is a memory fading, as if behind a curtain, I

was only four at the time.

The onion weed growing from the window of the cattle train which


my mother and me in 1944 is backed by the blue hand, symbolic of Divine

Providence. The hand is surrounded by the Star of David. In the left


the smoking chimneys refer to Auschwitz, in the right field there are

planes dropping bombs.
