Bronze and marble - 34" x 27" x 18"

In paying tribute to the Jews who participated in the fight against the Nazis in World War II, this sculpture uses symbolic images. The hand represents the armed forces - the American, British and Russian military. The broken, creepy-crawly swastika trying to escape represents the Nazis. The Star of David is fragmented, to show that the Jews did not fight as a single unit, but rather as part of all the various armies, in the partisans, in the concentration camp and ghetto uprisings, and in numerous individual acts of resistance. All these Jewish fighters come together united in the Star of David.
