The Jewish Museum
The Holocaust by George Segal, 1982. In his haunting representational manner, creating plaster casts of actual individuals and using real props, Segal has condensed many of the horrific images of the devastation into one. A pile of corpses lies behind an actual barbed-wire fence; the figure of a solitary survivor stands mute in the foreground. As sources, Segal used infamous images taken shortly after the Allied liberation of the camps.
