The Holocaust by trivostudio The Holocaust by trivostudio
This is my cryptic image assignment for AP class. We were supposed to do, like, an illusion drawing, adding 2 things together. A lot of my classmates did flowers or clouds or rocks so I decided to take it to a higher level. I wanted to dedicate this assignment to the Holocaust victims as well as survivors and the tragic genocide itself. As you can tell it is the face of Hitler and also a scenery of the crematory where the Jews were burnt. I have always thought the Holocaust is so fascinating and interesting to learn about, not that I like the fact millions of innocents were killed, but I just like to learn about it and why and how it happened.

Because this was a class assignment so I didn't have a whole lot of time to work on it. So it seems slobby and messy in some areas, but overall I think it's pretty good. I didn't plan out how it would look in the beginning because it was hard to do so, so I basically just added things as I went along. Although it could have been better, I like it, and I hope you do too. :)

Comments and faves please!! :)

To me, the Holocaust is the most terrifying thing i have ever seen in my life. i was 8 years old when i had first seen pictures of it. It wasn´t only the dead bodies in the mass graves. It was the faces of the victims who wheren´t dead already but facing death. it was like they called to me "Hannah, please save us"...

to see the horror in their eyes and to know that I couldn´t do anything to help them ( because it already happened) haunted me since then.

this is just amazing, you captured this monster and moment in history so well and this was a "quick one"? from you? damn! 
Haunting, heart-breaking, thought-provoking.
One image that captures the truth better than so many written facts.
The style actually echoes the style used in pictures created by survivors and other contemporaries and is therefore very appropriate.
One of those instanced where I have to put quotation marks within the sentence: I "like" this piece. I suppose you understand why.

The Holocaust was a very horrible event. Such a shame how people forget it, yet they still happen to remember 9/11... I know it was more recent, but more people know about the details of 9/11 than they do the Holocaust. Many lives where taken, most specifically Jews, Catholics, Slavs, LGBT, Communists and small groups of American, French and British POWs where worked to death till thay died. It was only after I converted to reform Judaism that I read about the horrors of this event. And why people forgetting/not knowing the details of this tragedy is a scary thing because as the saying goes, "If you don't know your history you are doomed to repeat it." Never again shall we let bigotry and fascism take the lives of innocents again... I hope so.

"There were girls who would run into the high-voltage wire fence. They were stripped of all their clothes, and every day, they would run across the yard, into the wires. The guards didn't even tried to stop them or shoot them. But they diligently collected the remains, leaving a clear path for the rest of the girls. One day, my friend asked me:
'Wanna run?'
'Where?' I asked.
'Into the wires...'
'Are you insane? If I run into the wires, and these guys loose the war tomorrow, I'll get a stroke in Heaven!'

Everyone laughed.
One of the guards, who wasn't German, had to stifle his own chuckle.

There were no suicides that day.
For one guffaw."

I love the message, the composition, and the "illusion drawing" style! Absolutely amazing.
Also, props for picking a deeper concept than the rest of your peers. :)

Woah. This is amazing. It shows a lot of the suffering. Great job on this.

I'm not Jewish and no members of my family suffered in the Holocaust, but he worst part of the Holocaust for me is the fact that it wasn't unique. Rwanda, Darfur to name a few.

Greed and hate rearing their ugly heads and marching unopposed. It's enough to make me weep.

Thanks for making this. I think it's brilliant and magnificent.

Never forget, and not just because it's history, but because it's repeating itself. Let's break the cycle
inhonoredglory Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2012  Student General Artist
What a unique idea. How did your teacher and classmates feel about it? I think it's a very skilled memorial to the fallen, a very sobering image.

You're fantastic at drawing. Good job!

this is incredible...! and it's so true...
My class just watched the film Schindler's List and so a am writing a report on it. But there was a scene where they were actually doing this. if you have never seen the movie talk to me and i will give you a link, but be warned it is probably the closest depiction of what actually happened.

God Bless those lost souls...
trivostudio Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2011
Thank you. I have seen Schindler's List so many times, you can't get through high school without seeing it. I actually got inspired from it. Great movie. :)
VexiWolf Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2011  Student Digital Artist
i completely agree with you

i actually decided to learn how to play the theme song on piano. It is definitely worth the trouble
