The Return to Zdunska Wola…



The 4 Quadrants

“Return to Zdunska Wola”  shows, from my point of view, the  disappearance that occurred in 1942 with the liquidation of the Jewish ghetto by the Nazis and  the assassination  of almost my entire  Zdunska Wola family

This return and renewal was made possible by K’amila Klauzinska, citizen of the city,  (involved with the history of Zdunska Wola and Jewish studies),  who saw my work on Facebook and invited me to participate in the cultural and artistic events, this month, in the Museum of Zdunska Wola, by an exhibition of my works screened on TV…(see below the invitation).

This in some way summarize and  shows the path of return to Zdunska Wola 2014 of myself and my family , 72 years after 1942….

My works in this exhibition are not meticulous drawings, on the contrary thy  where created in moments of pressure of the events in 1941, but, by a person who lives  in 2014 and remembers his own fears as a child hidden from the Nazis for four years in Belgium (1940-1944).
Still the drawings are “ordinary” but supposedly created in Zdunska Wola 1941, 72 years back in time as if I where some kind of alien coming from the “Planet  2014 … ”

And Indeed my signature at the bottom of the works symbolize this: “2014………Z.W. 1941…..”name  of the work”,,,,,,, שלמה “… Something like a code or more exactly- a password to my past, named Zdunska Wola.
