This modern sculpture really made me think. It was displayed in the children’s section and it depicts a really graphic image of a child’s shoe, wrapped in barbed wire, on a plinth.   At the bottom of the plinth, there are a series of cloth stars that depict the various stars worn by Jews from 11 different death camps.  The child that owned this shoe was sent to Auschwitz and exterminated. – for being a Jew.  Hitler, who was the Chancellor of Germany was obsessed with ridding the world of Jews.

Is persecution of people still happening today?

Oh yes it is!

Myanmar, North Korea, and Syria to name a few.


Is it right?   HELL NO!
