Abstract:

Kaddish in Wood is an exhibition of handmade woodcarvings by Dr. Herbert Savel, a physician who lives and works in Elizabethtown, New York. Trained in the German woodcarving technique, Savel creates these three-dimensional reliefs after Holocaust-era photos of Nazi victims. Dr. Savel says, "the goal of my art project is to represent the Holocaust in terms that the human mind can comprehend. Through my art, the suffering is returned to the level of the individual and, the unimaginable atrocities of the Holocaust are, in essence, re-humanized."
