Burnt Matches

A Star of David made from many burnt matches appears on the cover of the book Abstraction and the Holocaust by M Godfrey. This work of art titled ‘Yizkor’ is by Jewish conceptualist Mel Bochner, and it was made to remember the fate of the Jews of Rome during the holocaust.


Star of David with a monkey

A blue on white Star of David with a monkey appears on Israel Independence 1997 invitation to a party . Why monkey? Well, because the party took place on the roof of a dancing club called Monkeys. Hayim Shtayer took this photo and sent it to me, and I thank him for that.
