It Wasn't A Shield

israeli ART, Sabina Saad, Yellow Badge

Copyright: Sabina Saad 2008

Sabina told me that this work started when she realized that in Hebrew the Holocaust yellow star is called Yellow Badge and not Yellow David’s Shield. She thought the reason for this special naming was that it didn’t protect the Jewish victims. Then she illustrated this insight by painting a torn dismantled Yellow Badge and showing the stitches.

Wisdom 3:1  But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and there shall no torment touch them. 2  In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die: and their departure is taken for misery, 3  And their going from us to be utter destruction: but they are in peace. 4  For though they be punished in the sight of men, yet is their hope full of immortality. 5  And having been a little chastised, they shall be greatly rewarded: for God proved them, and found them worthy for himself. 6  As gold in the furnace hath he tried them, and received them as a burnt offering.

Memory Eternal! :-(
