14-Yellow Holocaust memorial candle
14-Yellow Holocaust memorial candle

22"x28" acrylic painting on canvas 2016 A Yellow Holocaust memorial candle is modeled after a traditional Jewish memorial candle that burns for 24 hours during periods of mourning and on the anniversary of the death of a family member. The concept of a special memorial candle being lit on Yom HaShoah was originally developed in the late 1970s by survivors of the Holocaust. The candle's yellow wax reminds us of the yellow arm band and stars which Jews were forced to wear by the Nazis.
