November: A time for remembrance - w(ar)t

November 20, 2020

This is a composite image that I created from a photo by Edward Burtynsky (2014) entitled, Abandoned Railbed, which was etched by William Lazos into one of the main concrete blocks at Canada’s National Holocaust Monument in Ottawa, Ontario.

A plaque next to this war art reads, "Sometimes deliberately, sometimes through force of nature, forests served to mask the evidence of genocide.   Along this rail spur, almost 1 million people were transported to the Treblinka killing centre hidden within these woods.   Approximately 900,000 Jews and an estimated 2000 Roma and Sinti were gassed to death at Treblinka."   Lest we forget.
