"Holocaust Books"

These books use old found books to contain images about the
Holocaust. The books are distressed, pages torn, blackened and
bound with thread or wire, and glued so that the story is only
partly known. The books are impenetrable, the images are
partially obscured.  Only bits and pieces of the past can be seen
and reconstructed in our minds.
