For the memory of the Holocaust victims from Libya

Acrylic on canvas

Cutting part of the canvas in the shape of the yellow badge, so that it alludes to the Jewish victims during the Holocaust.

The work is one of a series.

Sabina Saad says that Jews always regarded themselves as part of the regime under which they lived, and were meaningful contributors to those places – so that their disappearing in WWII left a hole (symbolically) in the flag of each country.

In Libya 5000 Jews were locked in concentration camps and 500 of them died from dysentery. 160 Jews were transferred to Bergen-Belsen.
