I have given this collage the title of 'Zachor' - remember, which is the word written in Hebrew letters.
The lady shown here is Erika, the same lady who was shown on my collage from Sunday when she was a child.
As this photo was taken she was living in South America - her family were forced by the Nazis to 'sell' their house and business and leave Germany - the alternative would have been concentration camp. They were allowed to buy their tickets and take 10 Marks each, the rest of the money was confiscated. But they were still thankful to find a safe land, even if they did have to start from scratch there. Later in her life she lived in Israel, before coming back to Germany, which she always regarded as her home.
I know these are things we often do not want to think about, but I think it is important not to forget.
I used some carboard, partly peeled, then painted and stamped for the background, lots of scraps, some stamped paper strips, lace and netting. And some pieces of old passports and letters. The beads have been made from rolled up strips of dictionary paper.
This is My DT piece for Try It On Tuesday. The challenge runs for 2 weeks, so you have plenty of time to try a collage with script on it.
Thanks for looking, have a great day, and take care!
