Jonasz Stern, Deportation of Jewish Children, 1940

(1904-1988) During occupation he found himself in the ghetto in Lvov, where he was involved in conspiracy, for which he was sent to the concentration camp in Bełżec. He managed, however, to flee from the transport and return to the ghetto. In 1943 he miraculously escaped death when a bullet from the firing squad missed him by inches.

The reality is that almost all of the Jews of Europe were killed and there were so very few survivors that had the Nazis had only a couple of more months there would have been almost none.


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.
