YIDDISH

In 1988, he printed a lithograph “Elegy for My Shtetl” that included a Yiddish poem written by his uncle, the well-known Yiddish journalist S. L. Shneiderman. This poem is about Kazimierz, a small Polish town and the home of the artist’s grandparents. It is a premonition of the Holocaust. Later, he did a series of collages and collage constructions using Yiddish texts as a background in homage of a culture that Nazi Germany tried to obliterate. Some of these collages were exhibited in a one-person show in 2005-2006 at the Yiddish Book Center, Amherst, MA.
